What Are The Most Popular Platforms Right Now?

Whether you are into politics, video games, or even classical art you probably spend a lot of time browsing the internet to connect with your community or to investigate the news on your favorite subjects. You might spend time on specific and specialized websites but more likely than not engage with your circles on some of the biggest online platforms. So, you may engage with online videos, live streams, or text threads posted by other users. If you, don’t you might be wondering, where can I find all these media? Well, the best way to connect to your favorite subjects and their communities online is to check out some of the biggest available platforms, so let’s go through a few.

1. Facebook

Facebook comes first on our list as it is the least current of the big platforms. While Facebook maintained its popularity for popular use and group content it did lose a lot of its place to other larger and trendier platforms. Facebook still is one of the biggest social media platforms of all time though, and there are a lot of communities that do gather on this platform. But following the scandals in which Facebook, now called Meta, was revealed to be selling user data during a hearing with the American government, Facebook has lost a lot of its luster.

2. Reddit

This platform is the culmination of the concept of internet forums. Reddit is the biggest forum as it has subcategories for everything you can think of. Whether you are a content creator, a political activist, or a beanie baby collector you will find the right category for you. In some cases, hyper niche categories also exist so you may find a community that’s exactly tailored to your needs as a beanie baby collecting politically active content creator. Reddit is also a platform that often shares articles and links to news outlets, so it is a great tool to remain informed, although fact-checking is never a bad idea.

3. Onlyfans

This one is a bit infamous due to its most explicit content, but it is a very popular platform and a great way to support plenty of content creators who prefer its monetization system to other platforms like Patreon. Its infamy is mostly unjustified as it is a perfect platform to give back power to sex workers or models who wish to put their content out there and avoid being abused and exploited by a predatory industry. So, whether you wish to support a cosplayer who offers lewder pictures or a content creator who posts exclusive content on Onlyfans, it is a great tool for your support to go directly to your favorite content creator.

4. Twitter

Tweets have become the best and fastest method for content creators to communicate with their bases. A tweet is an effective way to let all your followers know about your new YouTube video or if you are going live on YouTube or twitch. It is also a perfect tool to muster engagement and interactions with other big content creators to hype up your content. If you don’t use Twitter, you should! It is a great way to keep up to date on your political news, favorite celebrity, or preferred content creators.

5. Twitch

The amazon lives streaming platform is the biggest platform for streaming on the planet. It beats out YouTube live streams and Facebook live streams by a large margin. Whether you are interested in starting out streaming or you simply like to watch streamers, you cannot go wrong with Twitch. Whether you like video games, interesting people only chatting or even political commentary, Twitch has a large array of content creators you can choose from.

6. TikTok

The spiritual successor to Vine, TikTok has taken the planet by storm. While a much younger platform with a younger audience, TikTok garners millions of views and makes or breaks influencer careers on the daily. Its rise is phenomenal, but it is only the beginning of this small platform. You can find a lot of everything on TikTok, original music, dance trends, social activism, and just general memes are the bread and butter of this platform.

As you can see there are a lot of platforms to choose from depending on your interests and the way you use the internet. Explore all these platforms and find the right one for you if you aren’t already using these large and popular platforms in your daily internet routine. These are some of the top ones but as you can imagine other platforms still occupy a large place o the internet charts.
