    "If you want to grow your business, you can’t spend hours a day on Instagram and many small business owners and solopreneurs don’t have the budget for a social media manager to grow an Instagram following. So there is a need to an automation app to manage your social media. Instazood did it for me."

    "WhatsApp is one of the cool new alternative ways for people to stay connected. It has the functionality of your favorite text messaging app while allowing calls and providing Instagram and Snapchat like features at the same time. Has a ton of advertisements if you don't pay to avoid them."

    "Tumblr is a micro-blogging service that allows you to post multimedia (pictures, videos, GIFs) and to write short stories (like in a regular blog but small). Since it's small, being able to use it on a mobile device is one of the first things that comes to mind. The app is decent, Tumblr's functionality on mobile devices is not reduced. Whether to use Tumblr app entirely depends on whether you use this microblogging platform. For example, I'm not a Tumblr user, the app is of no interest to me. "

    "I signed up for Facebook about 10 years ago. I didn't think I would like it, not need it back then. I quickly found my high school best friend. We have kept in touch the whole time and are back to being best friends. I have met new friends and kept up with family and acquaintances from my past. There are a lot of ads, but thats understandable. I look on facebook about a dozen times aday, to either play games, check out new posts and even music. Its a great app"

    "I am a new user to snapchat. I bought a new iPhone and my son told me I should get it. Snapchat allows me to see what my friends and family are up to. Snapchat is like a picture book, or story. People document their day with photos, it could be food related, vacations, or something simple like a selfie. I think its fun to see all the pictures even though I don't add many yet, I enjoy seeing theirs"

    "I installed Soundcloud because one of my favorite bands is represented there. Or rather, the lead singer is. She fronts 35th & Taylor, and you should totally check her out! She's got a bunch of covers only on Soundcloud, like, get this, Guns N' Roses. No, really, she wails on it. And, you can listen right in the Soundcloud app."
