Social users grew by 13.1% in the year ending July 2021, undoubtedly influenced by the effects of Covid and enforced lockdowns across the globe. ”


A huge number considering that if you even try to visualize in front of you about how many people there are and what it will mean for the future is something you can think about while reading the article.

However, the fastest-growing Q2 2021 are TikTok and Instagram and they are guaranteed to live within 2022 now that Social media is becoming more common in society within individuals and companies. The inspiration is everywhere and it does not usually have to be that you want to see what your loved ones do, but they are also used as a search engine to find out places, restaurants, experiences, news or recipes.
