Facebook also updated features such as playable ads, page recommendations, video metric updates, video creation kit, and press and hold videos. These updates and changed people liked a lot and they kinda benefited them too.

WhatsApp has almost 1.5 billion monthly active users. I tell you why WhatsApp to was dominating it is because WhatsApp got new updates in it such as dark mode feature (first came in WhatsApp), delete messages, payment mode, QR code, and new group privacy setting feature. Because of these changes, businesses got so much benefit in their business as these changes are more of a privacy concern rather than just mere new updates.

Instagram has around 1 billion monthly active users. It is the social network where product-based businesses, influencers, and celebrities can thrive. Instagram introduced features such as camera create mode, raising money with new donation stickers, buying products from favorite Instagram influencers, AR effect on photos, etc.

4. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is one of the best social networks of the professional sites established in 2002. As per the data, LinkedIn had over 600 million members registered across 200 countries as of March 2019. LinkedIn makes people relation more professional than friendly one as people here get connected with each other especially for job or job change.
