    "For anyone who is active on social media, Twitter is a lot of fun. It is a great resource to get snapshots of what is happening in particular places around the world at the exact moment you are logging in. There are so many users to connect with on Twitter as well. All for free! So, if you haven't checked out Twitter yet, I highly recommend it."

    "This site fills its niche very well. I am not much for gardening or home desgin but this has given me many ideas for cooking. You can find just about anything that you are looking for. Negative, although not as bad as other social media platform, there is junk to soft through and a little inconsistentcy on what they consider adult content"

    "Linkedin is a good social media platform but not great. Linkedin is used to network with other people in your job area. If you are looking for just general social media, there are better options than LinkedIn"

    "I was looking to expand my social media use, so I tried Instagram out. It ended up being a really easy way to share pictures with friends and family, after snapping a shot I could upload it and show things off with just a single button press."

    "I needed to find another social media platform after Twitter deplatformed me for wrongthink and I junked Facebook because of its intrusive data collection. That didn't leave me with a lot of options, but I'm sure glad I ended up on Google+. Sure, the data collection thing is still an issue, but for now they don't seem to have a problem with free speech like the other platforms do."
