The best thing I like about social media is that it has given voice and power to the hands of millions of people across the world. Earlier it was impossible to communicate with people and show them your talent & abilities because there was not any common platform where people can watch you, but with the introduction of social media, it has become possible and feasible now you have the chance to build a community around your special talent and people will follow you if you are good enough.
You can literally become social media influencers and can create an impact on hundreds and thousands of your followers and all the credit goes to social media. Before social media, only big celebrities, sportspersons, and famous people are considered influencers but the whole scenario has changed because of the Internet and social media. It gives you the chance to monetize your talent which was impossible before the era of the Internet.
