           In current society of instant gratification, Social Media Platforms engage customers in a way that traditional marketing has never reached. With the ability to share ads and get the approval of friends, family and followers of a business. Traditional market typically had one exclusive method to reach the masses and that was through TV advertisement. Over the last decade this stumbled significantly, with feature such as DVR and streaming services diminishing the effectiveness. Advertisers need to find new methods to identify with their target markets without being a pushy sales representative. Images and Photos have ability on social media to draw in potential business without speaking a word. Site visitors want to do business with companies that feel like mom and pop stores, that they can trust, not faceless corporations who just want your money.
