Social media has become a must-have for any business in the 21st century. Though there are plenty of options out there, some of them have become a real success worldwide. Today we will have a look at the top social networking apps you can’t miss.

Social Networking Apps

1. Pyrus

Pyrus is a social networking app that focuses more on the business side. It enables real-time messaging, approval flows or task delegation. In this way, you can update the tasks and progress of your team while also communicating with them. Currently, it’s available for free on the app store and it will come soon to Android.

2. Pocket Casts

Podcasts have become a great source of information, and even more so if you’re a social media marketer. However, with all these options, it’s hard to choose all the great programs. Pocket Casts comes in handy. It’s the best podcast app, according to some. It’s available both on App Store (for $6.99) and Google Play ($3.99). It’s also useful for people who want to learn how to become a social media influencer.

3. Timehop

Timehop promises to connect all your social media accounts and to show you the memories. You can see what you shared 1, 2, or 3 years ago, just like with Facebook. Their goal is to become some sort of digital archive of your life. In this way, you could log your rides with Uber, see what you listened to on Spotify, see text messages and even more. It’s available for free, both on iOS and on Android.

4. Periscope

Are you a fan of live broadcasts? Then Periscope is one of the best social networking apps you should have. The app is owned by Twitter and it relies on live video streams. The rest of your friends who use Periscope will get a notification and can tune in. Viewers can interact with your streams by leaving you a heart or commenting. It’s also free for both platforms.

5. Tinder

Tinder is already quite famous, but for those of you who haven’t heard about it, it’s a matchmaking app. You see other people’s profiles (after you create your own), swipe right or left if you like them or not and then see if you have a match with them. It’s free and you can use it both on Android and iOS.

6. Yik Yak

This is a social network that targets college students. It’s some sort of Reddit, but with anonymous users. It is based on your location, so if you leave the campus you won’t have access anymore to the posts around you. However, it’s one of the best social networking apps for students. This, too, is free and available on both platforms.


The apps above are a must-have if you’re into social networking. They target various aspects and domains, such as matchmaking, college campuses or live videos. Moreover, they are very useful if you want to keep in touch, live stream something, find great podcasts or help your team communicate better. Finally, you can try out the free ones and see if you like them.
