In the past ten years, the use of social media has grown in a way that no one could have guessed.
A main feature of social media is its volatility(易变).Trends(流行)come and go, disappearing almost as quickly as they appear.So, what were the main social media trends of 2018?
Short video apps, such as Tik Tok and Douyin, took the world by storm.The Telegraph reported that Tik Tok was the 8th on Apple’s App Store in April.And Douyin had more than 300 million active users in June in China, CNBC said.

China has taken live streaming to a whole new level.More than 100 million Chinese people monthly watch a live streaming video.Forbes thought that a number of reasons had led to the popularity of live streams.One of the most important reasons is that people don’t have to know their real names.
