The Evolution Social Media first came to be in early 2000’s, however, it came to be more prominent in 2005. According to Brandignity Digital Marketing Agency, social media has become so popular throughout the years because of the opportunity to meet new people and join groups that share your interests. Best of all, social media networks were free to use, quickly let users access job opportunities, and helped businesses to reach out to their customers.
How did it take over the marketing industry? Before social media became so popular, you would find most marketing ads and graphics in newspapers, magazines, television, billboards, and the radio. Nowadays, most people rarely read newspapers or use anything other than their phones. Social media has multiple platforms that allow for people and businesses to market their products/services and companies easily. With major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and the most recent Tiktok, social media marketing has never been so simple. By having social media as a tool, it has created countless more jobs throughout the world and increased even more after the pandemic. Due to the pandemic shutting down the world, businesses have had to rely on social media to get their name and message out there. By creating accounts for their companies on social media and also by providing ads on social media, marketing companies rely on social media for their primary source of marketing.
