The pandemic has forced some of us to stay at home. Therefore sometimes we entertain ourselves with fun applications.

TikTok is currently one of the most downloaded apps in the world. Last April 2020, the app had amassed over 2 billion downloads globally. You could see that many people are becoming TikTok-kers, and some have built their careers drastically. Just take a look at Bella Poarch. 

At first, TikTok was seen to be Gen-Z's app, but now a lot of people are trying to be part of it. It could be just the perfect app for you to have fun with your family or simply your friends. 


2. Facebook

Facebook is still currently one of the most downloaded apps. Not only that, Facebook has been beneficial during this time when people wanted to connect and stay in touch. 

The Facebook family includes Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. Facebook Advertising and marketing are two essential activities for marketers.

3. Instagram

Instagram is still one of the most popular apps, though it has a lot of competitors like TikTok. But a lot of people are into Instagram because it's very useful for marketers. According to Statista, brands uploaded an average of 0.7 posts to the social platform every day in 2018. Between IGTV, Instagram Lives, and Instagram Stories, the app provides plenty of opportunities for marketers to engage with their audience.

There you go, Zoom, as most of us are currently working from home. Zoom is just the best application for us to conduct our meetings and even zoom hangouts. Though at the moment, it's impossible to get out from the zoom burnout, hanging in there, people!
