Week 2: I believe social media platforms like Twitter and Snapchat are highly geared toward personal use. In many twitter bio’s you see things like, Jokes, #hashtags, and sentimental quotes. Allowing you to show your character, most people don’t put things about them like age, education, or qualities. Most people don’t care what they post whether it be scandalous or illegal, its their online presence. Snap chat was a social media which started by a sexting app idea but ended up going viral and becoming a "normal social media" but is still what I would call one of the most informal SM's.
I would consider social media platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn more for business. Linked is an application in which you essentially upload your resume for people and businesses to see. They can view your references and everything right there on the site. This allows easy access to new business opportunities completely online.
Personally, I think Instagram works for both business and personal use. Instagram has slowly become both because now many times businesses reference their applicants Instagram to see if they approve their online persona as suitable for the position applied. Yet this person doesn’t not always think of employers, they also just upload pictures of new things in their life to show their friends and family.
