Top 35 Social Media Trends in June

From Mom-Connecting Video Chats to Pet-Streaming Networks

— June 30, 2018 — Social Media
In just a little over a decade, social media has gone from nonexistent to one of the dominant forces in the world as a whole, and the June 2018 social media trends show that that growth won't be stopping any time soon. Social media is massive, and yet upstart companies are still finding new niches to appeal to, all while the biggest players continue to eat up larger and larger portions of the population as a whole.

Social media's grown so big that it's even expanding beyond people. Pets and the internet have gone hand in hand for almost as long as the latter has been around, and so Petcube is a social media platform that explicitly shows off pets to users around the world.
