An online search engine is Google. It employs a unique algorithm to extract and arrange search results in order to deliver the most pertinent and reliable sources of information.
As stated in their mission statement, Google aims to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” It is the most popular search engine in the world, a position that has drawn ire and raised questions about its ability to control the flow of online information.
Because of Google’s dominance, the word “Google” may also be a verb, thus when someone looks for anything on Google, they may say that they “Googled” it.
Online video watching is simple thanks to YouTube, a free video sharing platform. Even better, you may make your own videos to post and share with others.

Facebook is a social networking site where users may exchange photos, comments, links to news stories or other noteworthy web material, talk in real time, and watch short-form video.
Shared material can be made accessible to everyone, or it can be shared privately with a small circle of friends or relatives, or even only with one person.

Instagram is a free social media platform designed for the exchange of images and moving pictures. It initially debuted on the iPhone in October 2010 and was made accessible on Android in April 2012. In April 2012, Facebook made the deal and has owned it ever since.
Instagram lets you follow persons that interest you, much like the majority of social networking platforms. Your homepage will thereafter have a feed that displays the most recent postings from everyone you follow. Posts may be liked, commented on, and shared with others.
