Do you like learning about new social networking apps?
Are you interested in getting the rundown of rising social networking apps for 2019?
Well, you came to the right place! 2019 brings in lots of new apps for tech geeks to try out. 2019 is also helping secret, less used social media platforms get noticed by new audiences. Here are 5 rising platforms that will sweep you off your feet and help you connect with those you love the most.
If you like writing and reading long-form content, then Medium is the social media platform for you!
Medium features thousands of writers who write for their own niche (or many niches). The platform advocates for big ideas and deep thoughts. You can follow certain writers and companies and get updates when new content comes out.
One of the neatest features about Medium is that writers can become part of a Partner Program. In this program, writers contribute to their own personal profile and followers can “clap” or “like” their work. These claps generate monthly payments for the writers who put out the content. A writer can make anywhere from $5 to $1000 depending on how much content they write and how many claps they get from their followers.
One more thing to mention about Medium: there is a monthly membership cost of $5 if you want to read more than five articles within a month. The great news about this monthly cost is that it is distributed among Medium’s writers. So, your monthly membership is benefiting great people with even greater ideas.
Ever wondered what it’s like to video chat multiple people at once?
Well, now you can stop wondering! Introducing House Party. A live group video chat that can connect up to 8 people at one time. You can sync your contacts to House Party and include all your friends and family in the fun.
One different aspect of this social networking app is that you and your friends don’t have to be “added” or “invited” to join a video chat group. Simply hop on the app and see who’s talking. You never know who will show up to your next House Party chat.
Generation Z has the first real users of this app. The audience finds that this House Party is a helpful social networking app for school group studying and figuring out when to get together with everyone. No more groups texts here!
Surprisingly, Kik is an app that has been around for some time. However, it is making its second debut in the social circles of Generation Z as well.
Kik is a messaging app that let you sync your contacts, find your friends with their usernames, send photos and videos, and even live video message.
One thing that separates Kik from other social networking apps is that you can meet people in different countries, as well as start discussion groups. So, if you want to talk to a group of people from Spain, China, and Hawaii all about email marketing trends, you can do this on Kik.
Remember the old days of Vine? Remember how sad everyone was the day that Vine died?
Now there is a new short-form video social media platform on the app front.
TikTok, once known as Musical.ly, allows you to make short-form music videos and share them with your friends. The app features special effects, photo filters, music filters, stickers, and voice changers. So, you can edit your videos and make them unique to your personality.
TikTok is like a cousin to Vine, but a shorter, more compact version of YouTube. Follow your friends and make collaborative videos. Have fun making short videos once again.
There is a new social media platform on the rise that is similar to Instagram, only with more privacy choices involved for its users.
Through Vero, you can share movies, music, television, books, locations, photos, and links with your friends. Create collections and build your profile so that others can see what you are up to. You can sync your contacts or find your friends through their personal Vero usernames.
The platform doesn’t feature any advertisements yet, so it is a nice break from all the other social networking apps that do. As for the privacy aspect, you can determine who sees your posts. Choose from close friends, friends, acquaintances, and followers so that not everyone can see your most personal additions. It is a lot more private than Facebook and Instagram combined.
