Social media is one of the most popular and widely used platforms in the world.
But according to a recent report by the consulting firm Deloitte, this platform is failing to deliver on its promises to build an inclusive and global society.
Social media companies are also facing increasing competition from other platforms, which are increasingly focused on making money through advertising.
In the case of social media news sites, there is growing competition from news sites that are not as well-known, or are owned by less well-connected companies, according to the Deloittles report.
The Deloits report found that the growth in social media was primarily driven by a desire for social media sites to be more accessible to people of all ages and from different backgrounds, rather than by increasing their size or reach.
However, the Delositers report said that the rise of mobile and video platforms and the use of content management systems to streamline social media sharing has made the social media platform industry increasingly competitive.
The report found there were about 30 million social media users globally, with the average user aged between 18 and 40.
Deloiters research found that users of social platforms account for 70 per cent of the world’s internet users, with about 15 per cent in China and about 12 per cent globally.
The company found that social media is not just a niche product; the social impact of social content is significant and is often underestimated.
It found that for every social media post made on social media in 2015, more than one billion people viewed it on the internet.
Delosits research also found that there is little evidence that companies are doing enough to engage and encourage their users to engage in positive behaviour.
The firm found that about 1.3 million people globally were engaged in “positive” behaviour in 2015 and that around two-thirds of that activity was related to the social content.
However the report said it was important to understand how social media can impact society.
“We believe social media should be used for the benefit of society rather than just for commercial gain, and that we should be able to see social impact in real time rather than in a few clicks of the mouse,” the report’s authors said.
It also found there was an increase in the use and influence of social networking services, as the number of active users grew to reach about one billion.
The biggest trend that has been identified by the Delouitte report was that users were more likely to use social media for news and social networking rather than entertainment or shopping.
It said it found that as more people were on social platforms, they were more active and engaged in social sharing.

By the end of last year, social media had become a dominant part of the daily life of almost all Australians.
The number of users using social media increased from about one in every four people to more than 1 in every three.
But despite the rise in use, the social network was still seen as a small and fragmented part of Australian life.
The latest Deloittle report found this was partly because of the rise and popularity of the new “social” platforms.
In a report released this week, Deloitsch said social media has a huge potential for social change, but it needed to be understood in the context of the broader economic, social and political system that exists in Australia.
“Social media can be a powerful and inclusive tool to engage with the people you care about,” Deloitty said.
“It is the tool that is the ultimate bridge between the digital and the real world.”
