Staying away from the digital world today can have a negative impact on social, economic and even professional well-being. In today’s world where all links lead to various social media platforms, whether it’s a job ad, a dinner recipe, or a quick guide to fixing a problem in a device, the internet has become the ultimate hub for all information.
How to stay current on the social media platforms that have transformed the way employers search for potential employees, consumers decide which products to buy, and everyday household decisions based on popularity different actions are taken?
The answer is pretty simple. Consider the purpose of each social media platform. For example:
Facebook is the most popular social media platform as it can target all types of audiences. Useful for both businesses and individuals, Facebook is the most visited website, sharing tons of content and hundreds of images every day.
Suitable for everyone, this social medium is a platform for sharing everyday activities. Sharing information about your achievements or activities allows your friends to share your joys.
Twitter allows tweeting and retweeting short messages and following celebrities and other friends and personalities of interest. A profile on Twitter means staying up to date with the latest happenings. While images can be shared via Twitter, this platform does not allow album sharing like Facebook.
Simply put, LinkedIn is a professional network for people (young or old) in the job market. Individual profiles have educational and work histories categorized into industries.
This platform serves as a one-stop shop for professionals and employers where professionals can post their CV; a pool of potential candidates is available to employers.
Similar to the platform, the profile on LinkedIn is professional. With the qualifications, skills and work experience listed in the profile, this is an electronic CV for individuals.
Pinterest is a pictorial social media platform where individuals avoid most of the images they have taken. This sharing platform is particularly useful for travelers, photographers, companies that market their products, creative artists and social workers. The pictures that say more than a thousand words are uploaded to Pinterest every day.
The list mentioned above is a non-exhaustive list and each of the social media platforms mentioned offers many, many other tabs and options.
