"Social networks aren’t about Web sites. They’re about experiences", how well quoted by Mike DiLorenzo, NHL social media marketing director. 

In a world, where today, social media exists almost as exclusively as does humanity, the impact that it has on mankind is an arguable issue. Social media are interactive technologies that facilitate the creation, sharing, and aggregation of content, ideas, interests, and other forms of expression through virtual communities and networks. Social media refers to new forms of media that involve interactive participation and social media apps are online platforms that enable users to create and share content and participate in social networking. 

There are multiple social media applications and platforms available on the internet today. People from almost all generations are using social media in some way or the other. From millennials to Gen-Z, anyone who owns a smartphone is prone to using social media. Some popular social media applications include Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Snapchat, X (previously known as Twitter), etc.

Initially, social media was brought into the picture so that people from different parts of the world could connect. The first identifiable social media site, was Six Degrees – a platform created in 1997 that enabled users to upload a profile and make friends with other users. Today, social media has various uses. It is not only used by people to connect with their loved ones and build relationships, but, it is also used by businesses and organizations to promote their businesses, increase their brand value, and keep up with current events and trends.
