6 Examples of Social Media Improving People's Lives | Social Media Today | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Social media websites have changed the way the people around the world interact with each other. No longer confined to traditional means of communication, people now can quickly access information and spread news simply by logging onto their favorite social networking site.
