5 Most Popular Social Media Platforms in the World

During this Covid-19 pandemic, the use of social media has increased significantly, one of which is because activities that are usually carried out face-to-face (work, lectures, and school) must be carried out at home to suppress the spread of the corona virus.

In addition to being something that can support one’s activities, social media can also provide several other benefits, ranging from up-to-date news about current events at home and abroad to relieving the feeling of being overwhelmed by deadlines.
