Less Known Social Media Websites
SoundCloud is one of those popular social media platforms where music lovers get to share both their music and other people’s music. But unfortunately, most people haven’t discovered this effective site as they still use YouTube for all their musical needs.
Unlike YouTube, SoundCloud is designed specifically for audio music, meaning that it comes with more functions including reposting, commenting and replaying.
Pausing and playing is instantaneous and it is very easy to find your way around it. There is also a wide variety of music available in here which includes unofficial remixes from upcoming artists as well as covers. Browsing can be done by genre, what’s trending and you can create a playlist based on your favorite songs.
A twitter subsidiary video app allows for you to have live web broadcasting from your phone. It will automatically send notifications to your followers to tune in and find out what you are up to?
You can choose to either go public or private especially if you are targeting specific users. Interaction is possible by commenting or leaving hearts.
Yik Yak is another social media platform that might not be that popular but is growing in popularity especially with the younger generation. There is no addition of friends in Yik Yak since it operates on its anonymity allowing you to only read short updates from people near your area.
The same kind of anonymity is extended to replies since you can do so with an alias. Your post can either be up-voted or down-voted by the people who get to see it.
Kik is a texting platform that is also taking root among young adults and teens. It allows members to text anonymously using usernames instead of their phone numbers which are in this case concealed.
It is efficient in not only chatting with people you know but also meeting new people who happen to be in the group. You can send GIFs and photos to friends. Scanning Kik codes allows members to add each other with ease.
While the Foursquare app is for location purposes, the additional Swarm app helps foursquare members to socialize with ease. Your friends will know where you check in, and if they are around, they can use the Swarm app to make arrangements to meet up. There are some games that players can use to play and stand a chance to win different prizes.
Vine is another one of twitter’s subsidiary apps which are popular for its pure entertainment. Vines are short and funny, which makes it easy to watching it as much as you want and pretty much have the time of your life as you laugh your lungs out. The videos only play a maximum of 6 seconds before they replace as they are on auto-loop.
