Before the different social media platforms, there was no such place where people can share their artwork. People had no place to show their photography skills to the world. Now, social media has become so common in the life of people. People can chat, talk, and see each other while staying at home. They can share their art and photography skills with the rest of the world.
Different social media platforms have different features. If we talk about the best social media for sharing your valuable photographs and videos, then ‘Instagram’ is on top of the list. On Instagram, you can share your images and videos as a post, or you can also share them on your story.
