Influence of Social Media “Swiping” Apps in Different Sectors
Nowadays, social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and so on, are widely used to connect with people in the world, with the most various interests and among different sectors. From religion to entrepreneurship and dating, every area is being disrupted by the influence of such platforms.
You might be amazed by the types of videos that are uploading each minute in TikTok for example. Not only there is engagement within the app, but also outside of it, with similar kinds of swipe apps being created almost on a daily basis. From adult tik tok videos on the process of creating new startups, there is plenty of choice on the platform.
What are some sectors that are experiencing great changes due to this influence?
Swipe Mobile Apps almost for any sector
It’s not a surprise that new apps that get the addictive “swipe” movement, are also under the radar of various others sectors. One of the most recent social media apps that are focused on connecting with other people is Luxy. It is an app that connects millionaires and beautiful people with one another. In this case, both male and female users are able to use Luxy to find other men or women who are interested in them. What’s unique about this app is that there are no fake accounts on the platform. Every user on the platform has verified credentials from either Forbes or PayPal, which means it is a more transparent service compared to other services like Tinder. This app proves popular in America where there are thousands of millionaires living who want to connect with others via a dating app that helps them meet eligible singles around them.
Religion Getting More Committed to Social Media
There is an increasing awareness of religion by people who are using these social media platforms.
Some religions such as Christianity have a strong presence on multiple social media apps like Facebook while others less so. More so, the world is seeing an increase in the number of people who are actively engaged with religion through such social media apps.
The positive impact of social media apps on religion is widely recognized, but some of these religious-based apps are not without their flaws. We are going to be looking at the one focused on in our blog Christianity and how it is using certain social media platforms.
Christianity is a global religion that has used the internet as a medium for sharing information and spreading spirituality since its inception via God’s works – The Bible – over 2,000 years ago. The adoption by Christianity of new kinds of communications has been slow but has been consistent in the last decade or so.
Christianity started adopting social media between 2007 and 2008. From live videos by the Pope on platforms like Facebook to the use of apps like Instagram to engage with people and bringing them closer to the religion of Christianity, we find that there has been significant adoption of social media platforms by the religion. The inclusivity on these platforms even saw the birth of one particular movement called ‘Christianity and Social Media’.
For many people with varying religions, it is not the offline version that they want to be connected with but rather through this digital platform.
New Apps for Connecting Sports People
It is no wonder that new apps for sports have been one of the most popular apps over the past few years because many people love sports. A recent example of an app created for sports lovers is Kick, which connects them with fellows in their neighborhood through a local soccer match. All through the “swipe” addictive movement. This app was launched in the UK and is already very popular among the locals. The idea of this app is simple: people can request to have a game of football or any other sport that they are passionate about hosted at their homes and get people from near them to join those matches. By getting this kind of connection established between all individuals who like soccer, it will generate a sense of community among them and make them more respectful towards each other.
