News travels more quickly each day thanks to the popularity of social media. Using a social networking platform like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter is often the fastest and most efficient way to deliver news and updates. Just like with other industries, social networks have to keep with the changes in our society. Social media platforms change their algorithms daily, and it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes happening on each platform.
Contrary to what you might think, it is possible to stay up to date with these changes without spending several hours a day. Here are some tools you can use to get all the latest news in social media without losing your sanity.
If getting news directly from the source company is most important to you, you’re in luck. Every social media platform has a blog where they provide information on any updates they’ve made lately.

They also offer tips and suggestions for getting the most from the platform. The easiest way to access the blogs for all the top social media websites is to locate main blog page and bookmark that page in your browser. You can then quickly open the blog pages every day and scan the top headlines for new information.
