Everywhere someone turns, they spot a person on some type of social media site. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever else the social media type, someone is on there scrolling away looking for something new and interesting.
Social media is on the rise because it keeps everyone up to date on what is going on in today’s society in the palm of their hand. They can see what is going on in the news as well as how to make a certain type of food for dinner that night.
An app called BuzzFeed allows the person to see how to make something desirable and delicious in under a certain amount of minutes. This appeals to people on social media because they are constantly looking for ways to try something interesting. What better way to do so than to watch a 60 second prep video on how to make a fast dinner. This video shows how to make an egg tart in a minute long video. It may not take a minute to make, but it shows the steps to get there.
All it takes is a click of a button and there is the information one needs to do and get what they want.

If social media can attack the interest level of a person, then it will continue to rise. It keeps people close ties with ones that may be far away and build lasting relationships.

The prediction of the increase to the next few years of 2016,2017, and 2018 is around 97% of our population. That is well over the majority of people that will be using social media, so it is indeed on the rise.
