From Rapper-Made Social Platforms to Emoji Expansions

 - Mar 25, 2018
These March 2018 social media innovations outline the various ways in which social media platforms and networks are shaping our culture, both online and offline.

This month's list features a variety of examples of new innovations that emphasize connection, rather than isolation. One of these examples of social betterment is the rapper Chamillionaire's new social platform, which encourages its consumers to meet in the real world after the app facilitates an online connection. Meanwhile, a collection of new dating apps have appeared, all of which play into niche interests, like food or special activities, to deepen connections between users.

Meanwhile, Apple is hoping to further its engagement by offering 157 new emoji designs, that range from food items like bagels and mangos, to new hair colors and styles.
