Underrated Social Media Apps

None of us can deny that we are social media addicts. We could toil day by day in offices and homes. But, at the end of the day, all of us are glued to our cell phones. We turn to entertainment in these social media apps to take the edge off the work tension. 

Undoubtedly, apps like Instagram, Snapchat, Tik Tok and Facebook currently dominate the social media platform. Aimlessly scrolling through the feed of Instagram and Facebook, we haven’t given other countless social networking apps a chance. 

With the user base facing tremendous growth every year, companies strive hard to provide their users with the right platform to build valuable connections and reach their target audience.

Without further ado, let us dive right into the plethora of social media sites that present abundant opportunities to express your creativity, create unique content, explore new areas, etc. 

  • Pinterest

It is a social media site that users can utilise to discover ideas that spark inspiration or “pinspiration”. Unlike posts shared on Instagram or Facebook, posts on Pinterest have a much longer lifespan. Your posts could be as old as time itself, but they would still be what someone else needs today. Pinners are interested in new and unique products. Small-scale businesses can bring their products to the spotlight by using the right keywords and captivating images.

  • Reddit

It is a discussion-based platform where people come together for respectful interaction and constructive conversations. It consists of many forums called subreddits. Every subreddit has its topic of interest, like cooking recipes, technology advancements, sports, etc. 

Starting a conversation is the best way of marketing on Reddit. You can use Reddit to get feedback on your products, campaigns and other aspects of your business.
