2016 was an interesting year for social media.
It’s the year that Snapchat emerged out of the shadows, evolved into Snap Inc. and created a new segment of wearables while everyone else got busy copying them.

Mark Zuckerberg recently announced the expansion of Facebook Live, a feature that was limited to celebrity profiles with verified pages, to all profiles around the world.
This means that any individual can stream a real-time video for his friends and followers to view. Once implemented, Facebook will become the host of a variety of real-time content, thereby allowing each user to become a content creator within his own spheres.
