A few years back, it was difficult to know what exactly was happening in the lives of people, especially celebrities and prominent people in society but today, it’s totally different with the introduction of various social media platforms.
These social media platforms, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and many others have become fertile grounds for people especially celebrities, socialites, influencers to flaunt whatever they’ve acquired in life.
