Social media is now a phrase that many of us are common with thanks to the likes of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn Etc. These sites have revolutionised the way people connect over the internet and made social media a massive part of lots of peoples everyday life. Social media is used to communicate all sorts of information to millions of people every day.
Many companies use it to promote a special offer they have or new product they are launching. Other industries like the police for example use it to warn the public about something or ask for their help on information that they may require and many charities are now using it.
A great example of how social media can really benefit many people is the recent case of a young man with cancer having raised over 4 million pounds for the teenage cancer trust by discussing his day by day life on the social media websites.
