As of August 2015, we cannot argue that Photo Sharing is still trending and even in content posting the importance of photos is always emphasized. The popularity of mobile internet, people using their mobiles to manage accounts, and continuous development of smart phones is increasing the reach of social and all other internet sites and apps.
Although a lot are still confused on the role of Google+, its functions and features cannot be ignored and is already proving its importance in the social media community.

A great example of this will be the use of social stats to help gauge the effectiveness of the various political campaigns and how well their messages are received.
