The 13 best social networks to use in 2019
Let’s start with the obvious choices. Despite all its faults (and many of them), Facebook is still comfortably the most popular social network in the world.
With more than 2 billion users, it’s the right place for you to easily connect with most people in your current or old life.
YouTube is a video sharing platform with users who watch a billion hours daily. You can create a YouTube channel to upload videos, subscribe, watch, enjoy, comment and share.
In addition to being the second largest social media site in the world, YouTube (owned by Google) is also known as the second largest search engine after Google.
If you’re more interested in seeing short pictures and videos, Instagram may be the best social network for you.
Perhaps unfairly, the network has developed a reputation for being shallow and full of selfies. But if you dig in the middle of the futility, you can find stunning photographs, incredible works of art and more.
Twitter is another network that has received a negative reputation. The limit of 280 characters (previously 140 characters) did not promote informed debate, and the presence of millions of fake bots only serves to further erode the experience.
However, if you want to be on the cutting edge of the latest news, instant reactions and access to celebrity and favorite sports journalists, Twitter is an unmatched resource.
LinkedIn is a social network for professionals. As the site grew, it has become one of the best ways to create your resume and find a new job. In addition, it is also a professional social media site, in which experts share content and interact in a network. It has also become a place for companies to establish their leadership and authority in the industry, and attract talent to their company.
LinkedIn also offers advertising opportunities to propagate your content, send personalized ads to LinkedIn inboxes, and display ads next to your site.
Snapchat is a social media application that focuses on sharing short photos and videos (known as snaps) between friends. This made the Stories format popular, which eventually proliferated on other platforms, such as Instagram. But the rise of Instagram Stories seems to have hampered the growth of Snapchat.
Tumblr is what happens when the worlds of social networks and blogs collide. You can post text, photos, videos and other media content on your blog page, and other users can follow.
The social network also supports HTML editing; if you have enough skill, you can completely customize the look and layout of your page. You can even use your own name in a custom domain.
Tumblr is (presumably) safe for minors. Before a definitive ban in December 2018, estimates suggested that up to 22% of site traffic was pornographic in nature.
Pinterest is the best social network for bookmarking of images (although it also supports GIFs and videos). You can add images and links, follow other users and comment.
The website is great if you are looking for inspiration for a craft project or if you need something to stimulate a creative idea in your head.
Ask.fm is a question and answer site. Users submit queries and anyone can come in and share their thoughts.
The site used to be anonymous, but the suicides of two British teenagers, after being allegedly victims of bulliyng, forced the platform to take a security measure.
VKontakte is the Russian equivalent of Facebook; it is the most popular site in the country. The social network shares many of the same features as its American counterpart, including groups, pages, private messages, event management, tagging, and games.
Flickr is basically a photo hosting site. There are free and paid options. The free option was able to provide 1TB of space, but by early 2019, the company reduced to 1,000 images. Users can comment, share and enjoy the photos they enjoy.
Are you looking for love? So Tinder is an app worth exploring. The social media platform is full of unique users who want to meet and spend a few hours together. And who knows, there is not your soul mate?
Foursquare is a location-based social media application. You can use it to find restaurants, events and other places nearby when you are away from home.
Of course, the location-based feature means that the application faces many privacy-related issues. This means that you will have to share your location to use it.
Yes, Myspace is still alive. Today, Myspace is a music-themed social network. In many ways, it filled the void left by Spotify after the Swedish company removed the best social features of the application. Myspace lets you listen to music and talk about it with other users.
TikTok is one of the newest social media applications in the world. It is trying to fill the space that Vine left behind after its shutdown.
There is clearly a significant demand for short videos; TikTok was the world’s most downloaded application in the first quarter of 2018.
