Social media sites are one of the most popular sites on the internet in recent times, with billions of people logging onto sites such as Facebook every day. Social media can be used for individuals for express their opinions, businesses to showcase what they do and many other ways to use these platforms. Due to the power that they now have on the internet market, we thought we’d make a list of the most popular social medias of 2020.
First of all, we will talk about the biggest fish in the pond with over 2.5 billion monthly users, Facebook is quite clearly the most used social site in the entire world. Facebook also owns WhatsApp and Instagram, and we can’t see it getting knocked off top spot any time soon. Facebook is used as a daily social media for many to update their friends with interesting and engaging content as well as photos and videos to let their friends know what they’ve been up to. Facebook was the market catalyst and still continues to dominate.
Social media hasn’t been the only online site that has benefitted during 2020 attracting large audiences, in fact, online betting sites such as here have also seen a surge in numbers during this period. This is down to the fact that they are able to offer some of the best odds on the market as well promotional deals and sign up offers for all new customers sign up at the end of 2020.
Next up is the new kid on the block and since its release two years ago it has been flying through the App Store rankings and has actually been the most downloaded app of 2020 every single month – TikTok. TikTok is a video recording app in which you can create and share videos with your followers and has been hugely popular with a younger generation due to its funny and easy to access content. TikTok is currently reporting over 800 million active users each month and we expect this number to rise going into 2021.
And finally, and probably our favourite social media has to be that of Instagram. The home of the influecer lifestyle showing off their lavish lifestyle of brands and bloggers and is the best and only photo sharing app that we would be using. Instagram is now having over 1 billion users each month and have become increasingly popular when Facebook bought it back in 2012 for $1 billion. It also started a trend in which you can hear many saying ‘get a photo for the gram!’
