Some people would admit that they can not live without their fix of social media, children and adults have their accounts and updating their every moments from what’s for dinner to enjoying deep see diving. People are renaming themselves after their social media account usernames, businesses are spending millions on marketing using them and we have even had blockbusting movies made on their creation, breaking news hits their news channels first over dedicated news channels, celebrities/politicians/royalty all use it… It’s a busy world of social media out there, just where we are going with it who knows!
