As social media has become increasingly popularized in this generation, companies are using all social media platforms to market and reach customers. However, reaching the public and getting activity on their accounts turns out to be a lot harder than they thought. A lot of companies didn’t understand how people moved through social media: what caught their eyes, what they click on, what they care about. But people who are regularly using social media know how people use it. Millennials are, for the most part, masters of social media. Many use various social media sites every day and some have millions of followers just because they post content that the users want to see.
Because millennials are so knowledgeable about social media, companies are looking to hire millennials to coach them on how to manage their accounts or to completely run the account. This is a great opportunity for millennials to aid companies in reaching the market and getting the most out of traffic through their accounts.
