Communities! The most rewarding outcome of these platforms. When people connect and share interests communities are born and this allows people to expand their knowledge base. These communities bring people closer and provide them with the exposure needed for them to grow. Today, on the last day of June, Social Media Day is celebrated. It was started by Mashable in 2010 with the intention of recognizing how big its impact has been globally.

The very first social media platform is considered to be Six Degrees founded by Andrew Weinreich in May 1996 followed by many others. But very few succeeded in becoming the giants like Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and so many more.

This reflects to the potential behind the power of social media and the huge customer base it attracts. But it’s not just the founders and CEOs of these companies that are getting rich. It is also the users that are utilizing these platforms to earn a living. These platforms have a huge power of exposure for its users.

Maybe only few of us might be able to predict the long term effects of it but one thing’s for sure that social media is here to stay and mold the social fabric of our society.
