When it comes to pictures Instagram offers one of the world’s most popular online galleries. This social media platform brings users together via shared visual aesthetics. Since its founding in 2010, Instagram has now grown as a platform to promote business, connect with distant relatives, and network. The app includes filters, special effects, and several other attributes which creates a unique experience for users after each use.
On the other hand, Twitter, which was founded back in 2006 welcomes users seeking a different kind of social space. This platform lets users share their thoughts (tweet), network, post media, and keep up with the latest news. As the digital age has progressed, Twitter has welcomed several upgrades including expanding their 140 character limit to 280.
Founded just two years before Twitter was the legendary Facebook. Created by a couple of Harvard students back in 2004, Facebook has now become one of the Big Four technology companies along with Apple, Amazon, and Google. Formerly used by only college students, Facebook has become a world-wide platform more commonly used for personal reasons. Users can share their thoughts via live news feed and announce personal milestones like getting married or having children.
