There are many different types of social media in the world today. For example; Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat. You can share pictures, post what you are doing, or just keep in touch with old friends on these different types of social media.

In conclusion, social media is a big part of my everyday life. I use Twitter and snapchat everyday, but my personal favorite of the two is Twitter. It is a great way to interact with a wide variety of people all over the world, you can express however you feel on a topic, and you can post pictures of your you and your siblings, or a video of you playing with your dog. It 's a really good social media app and can be really useful in many different and unique ways, differently than other social media
