If you had to go on Google and search: "What is social media?", it'll bring up several definitions and examples of it.

In my opinion, the best way to describe social media is a digital platform which allows users to share content and get to know new people online.

It allows people to start conversations with one another, share pictures of what they are doing in their daily lives and react to these posts too.

It also allows people to share their thoughts on social issues such as racism for example.

In 2020, the case of George Floyd in America made people locked inside their homes because of the pandemic, to take on to social media platforms such as Twitter and raise more awareness on racism and police brutality.

Many were who livestreamed the protests made around the world to urge governments to take more action on such issues.

During the pandemic, it also allowed for celebrities alike who were stuck inside because of lockdown to connect with their fans and hold live broadcasts of something which they were doing at home.

They would either host a small concert or talk to their fans, hoping for time to pass as quickly as possible.

Social media started off as a place where people get to know each other and meet others who are probably far away from them or in a different country.

But by time, it has also given way to new marketing opportunities and it has also become a space where brands promote their products.

They do so not only through their brand accounts, but also through the so called influencers.

Being an influencer has become a common thing to say in 2022.

An influencer would be someone who tries out different products which has to do with their niche topic, for example hair, and promote them on his or her social media channels.

They normally offer discounts or giveaways with such promotions, to urge followers to buy the products too.

Which social media sites are there?

There are several social media platforms, and you might have heard of some already.

There are:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Snapchat
  • Whatsapp
  • TikTok
  • Reddit

How many people use social media?

The most popular social media platform is Facebook with 2.91 billion users.

I tried trimming my own bangs and the result was terrible, people say I made a big mistake

Giving yourself a haircut can seem easier than it is when you're reading instructions online or watching a tutorial video.

And even though you may have done it once before doesn't mean you'll for sure do it correctly again.

Daisy proved this on her TikTok @_diydaisy when she attempted to trim her forehead bangs in one video.

The brave creator starts by slicking her wet bangs down on her forehead.

She points out the unevenness in the length of the hair.

Using a pair of what looks like regular scissors, Daisy chops the ends of the middle section.

"That's a bit short, but yolo," she nervously says.

After one chunk is cut, she starts evening out the side sections.

And her bangs are still not even.

"Oh s**t," Daisy blurts out.

"Tell me you cut your own bangs without telling me..."

While the length might've been too long with her before, the finished result is choppy.

She asks viewers: "What do you think?"

About 3,000 people had no problem telling her their opinion.

"That's wrong in a million ways," an overly honest individual wrote.

A professional hairdresser commented: "I just had a heart attack."
