Although a more grown-up member of the social media family, LinkedIn is easily one of the best platforms when it comes to networking.
LinkedIn acts a service that enables users to connect with potential employers and recruiters, discover opportunities in careers and networking, and, of course, to showcase yourself on a professional level.
The most popular photo sharing app Instagram has racked up about 800million users and, although the app is in many ways built on the idea of vanity, Instagram is easily one of the most enjoyable social media platforms available.
Instagram is a place where producing aesthetically pleasing and artistic imagery is celebrated, which elevates the app as the best visual social media platform on offer.
Tumblr is known as a platform that combines both social networking and microblogging.
Tumblr can be a great place to share thoughts and creativity with likeminded users, however in recent years the site has notoriously become infiltrated by hysterical outrage culture, which in my view makes for a less pleasurable user experience.
In 2018 research showed that Tumblr has a whopping 500million users.
Over the past decade, the site was abandoned in favour of its closest rival Facebook, and this in turn meant MySpace failed to develop and evolve into a social media platform which would meet todays general expectations.
Musicians enjoy the new MySpace platform in seeking promotions, networkings and interaction with fans.
As of 2018 it is believed that the once most popular social media site in the world has about 28million users in the US.
