One of the most exciting, and at the same time, frustrating things about social media is that there are so many different formats. As a matter of fact, there are so many formats of social media that some social media platforms are surprising for people. For one thing, there are a wide range of different features as it depends on the platform. For instance, one social media platform could be a micro-blogging platform while another social media platform could be a video sharing site. Yet another social media platform could also be a blog host that allows people to monetize their content.
One example of a social media platform is Twitter. It is considered a micro-blogging site in that people are allowed a limit to how many characters they can put in their post. Then there is Tumblr, which has probably started off as a blog host, then evolved into a social media platform. Everyone knows about Facebook which is one of the largest social media platforms because there are hardly any limits. Then another successful platform is YouTube. People get to post videos. At the same time, they get to comment on the videos and share their insights.
These are an example of formats that people can use in order to get connected in the ways they want to connect or become famous for their careers.
