A few years ago, hi5 was the coolest place to meet people, start conversations and form life-long bonds with total strangers. Social media has long since evolved and is no longer just a means of communicating with friends, but a bigger tool that empowers individuals to voice their thoughts and opinions on issues that affect the entire world. It has also become a very important asset for business owners, politicians, job seekers and the likes.

No doubt, social media is a very powerful tool that will become an integral part of our daily lives in the coming years.

“Social media will force brands to become a person and act as such.
