What we love about our social media apps.
Did you know that the world seems to be a better global village with the use of social media? One can confidently and comfortably converse with a loved one and even a stranger via these social apps.
According to research and I quote “The first recognizable social media site, Six Degrees, was created in 1997. It enabled users to upload a profile and make friends with other users. In 1999, the first blogging sites became popular, creating a social media sensation that’s still popular today.”
I bet a lot of us didn’t know that right? Do we all remember MySpace, Hi5, Tumbler, Baddo, Numbizz , 2go and Facebook were like the very first set of social apps to hit us?
2go was an app that helped people connect with people both far and wide. And pictures could be sent and received. There were chat rooms of various activities. Omo! People went crazy with it here in Nigeria that’s for sure. Me sef follow.
There are about 60+ social apps right now for us to choose from and they are free as well. The only difference is you’ve got to have an enabled phone and a subscription to enjoy the beautiful nectar of social media apps.
The popular apps most people frenzy on from time immemorial are Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, WhatsApp and Instagram.
Facebook helps you send pictures, videos, post, like and share.
WhatsApp gives people the opportunity to save call credit. Abi I lie? Status update, picture sharing, chatting and audio and video call of course.

These apps have put us all in a global village and all you need do is follow,like and comment.
