Social Media Applications have been into news since the very time they were introduced globally. Who would have ever thought that there would be a platform where people living thousands of kilometers apart would be able to communicate with strangers. For example, if you are right now sitting in India and want to send a message or see your friends living in the U.K, any social media application would allow you to facetime your buddy.
That’s the power of social media applications. There have been so many technology wonders that have always made people’s lives easier. However, above all, I consider Social media applications as the best creation of technology. They have created a new world for the people that was earlier thought to be only magic.
If you have an account on social media applications like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Connected, and others, you must have already seen so many entertaining videos and stuff. However, Social Media is not limited to these things. Rather, Social Media has grown as one of those things that have a major impact on the development of the society. Social Media Applications are known to have thousands of different uses.
While some of them are dedicated towards individual growth, there are many that help the society as a whole. The best example of how these applications help the society could be understood by the way of political parties. Tell me about a political party that does not have its account on social media platforms.
Politicians of the ruling government take decisions that drive the development of the society. But these officials also have to gather information on what things people need and what all areas are there in the nations that require development. Once the politicians have these answers, it becomes comparatively easy for them to take effective decisions and implement the same.
This is where social media applications play their role. A politician or a civil servant has platforms in front of him using which he can get insights on the voters’ likes and preferences. Knowing these things allow them to set some guidelines and take effective decisions that would ultimately result in the development of society.
Here are 5 more benefits of Social Media Applications
