As per a statistics report from a website statista.com, there are 2.6 billion social media users in the world as compared to around 1 billion users in the year 2010. It is expected that the number of social media users will cross 3 billion by 2021. This report also claims that of the total internet users, 71% are social media users and Facebook is the leader in social media applications with 1.86 billion active users. Social media have inevitably become an integral part of the contemporary classroom, of advertising and public relations industries, of political campaigning, and of numerous other aspects of our daily existence.
