As a student and minor, social media plays a big role in today’s society. There are so many different types of social media, for example Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, Snapchat, that allow us to see what else is going on. I like to use these sources to connect with different things I enjoy seeing, and I like to see what’s all going on elsewhere.
I feel like social media plays a big role with businesses advertising their services. I’ve noticed on social media that there are plenty of businesses that are taking advantage of the opportunity to advertise, and I would like to see smaller businesses putting themselves out there more, to become something bigger.
I also would recommend that businesses stay tuned to the trending things that will catch an individual’s eye. There is always something new going on, and if one person sees an advertisement that caught their attention, that person could pass it on to another, then another, and eventually the business will be in good shape with customers. I also think that it’s very important for a business to interact with the community whether it be a contest or a giveaway on social media, because that will draw people in for their service.
Kids in my generation tend to like to laugh, so if a business is advertising on a source, don’t make it too serious. Make it fun and catchy, something that will become a trend. Social media isn’t going away anytime soon, so businesses need to take action now and learn to work with social media to promote themselves, and make people know who they are. It’s very important to connect with the media, just like I enjoy connecting to it every day.
