However, with these amazing social networking sites, it has now become very easy for everyone with certain skill set to earn bread and butter using these applications or social networking sites.
There are many companies that promote their goods and services using these platforms. These companies place their advertisements usually on videos that have more number of views or likes. Image you have an account on any social media application where you regularly share content on any topic.

It does become sometimes terrible when we speak of social media applications. There are certain fringe elements on these platforms that humiliate or bully people using these digital platforms.
