There are all kinds of social media platforms on the internet. Some are those hypersocial, extra-exposing platforms that allow users to do everything in one place. Facebook and Instagram fall into this category. Others are more focused on a handful of basic features, made for users who prefer greater privacy and fewer features. Snapchat and WhatsApp are two of the best examples in this category.
Then come the platforms that lie somewhere between the two extremes, providing a balanced experience to their users. These platforms generally allow users to socialize with a plethora of users, though not with as much freedom as they would get on Facebook or other similar platforms. Telegram is a good example.
But in this blog, we will talk about another amazing platform that falls in the third category: Discord. Discord is one of the coolest platforms ever, and we mean it. Although many people consider it a platform for gaming communities, it is much more than that. Discord is fun as long as you have friends to talk with on any topic.
