Our world seems to revolve around social media. And with so many platforms, staying up to date can be overwhelming.
Today I have paired the zodiac signs with their perfect social media platforms. Don’t forget to check your moon and rising sign as well as your sun sign. You can check your birth chart here.
Snapchat’s mission statement says that the app is designed to empower people to express themselves and live in the moment. And who loves to empower and express themselves more than an Aries? But that’s not the only reason I paired this app with the cardinal fire sign. Snapchat messages delete themselves after being opened, which is perfect for a sign that has an attention span of a goldfish. I’m sorry my fellow Aries, but you know it’s true.
Taureans are ruled by Venus, the planet that governs our romantic inclinations and aesthetic tastes. And the luxurious earth sign certainly loves to indulge their personal aesthetics. So naturally, I had to pair the lover of earthly delights with the social media app that provides the user with a bevy of aesthetically pleasing images.
There is a major reason and a minor reason as to why I paired this social media app with Gemini. The major reason is that Gemini is the wordsmith of the zodiac. So they could use the app to share their eloquent words with the world. Or at least, that is how we hope they would use the app. The minor reason is that Geminis are air signs and the logo for Twitter is a bird!
I paired Cancer with Pinterest for a couple of reasons. Cancerians are known to be one of the most creative signs in the zodiac. And they are also known to be dedicated to creating a home/safe space for themselves as well as their loved ones. Pinterest can help nurture their creative ideas for their artistic and/or DIY home projects.
YouTube’s first slogan was “Broadcast Yourself.” And if any zodiac sign would want to broadcast themselves, it’s Leo! Bo Burnam, the successful comedian, is a perfect example of a fixed fire sign who rose to prominence through use of this popular social media site. He even wrote a song blaming…er, thanking YouTube for his success.
Virgos are known to be helpful and pragmatic. They are also known to be quite analytical. Thankfully, the internet has provided the world with a social media site that will allow the inquisitive sign to find the answers to their most pressing questions. And since the mutable earth sign enjoys helping others so much, they can use the site to answer other users’ questions as well.
Like Taurus, Libra is also ruled by Venus. That may explain why so many of them are shameless flirts and social butterflies. The cardinal air sign is certainly one of the most sociable signs in the zodiac. So I just had to pair them with the king of the social media sites, Facebook. Libras love to stay in touch with people and they love to make new friends. And Facebook is the ideal place to do both.
Scorpios are known to be the most sensual creatures in the zodiac. But they are also known to be one of the most romantic signs as well. And a nice dating social media app will allow them to make a connection with someone special. Bumble is often used by people who are looking for a serious relationship. But if you are looking for something more casual, try Tinder.
Like their fellow fire signs, Sagittarians love to express and entertain themselves as well as others. So TikTok is the perfect app for them. The app will allow them to indulge their need for entertainment. And thanks to the trend of users and influencers being so open with their struggles and experiences, it will allow the introspective mutable sign to understand themselves and others around them a little bit better.
I have often called Capricorns the executives of the zodiac. Earth signs are known to work diligently, so it only makes sense that the cardinal earth sign would have an exceptional work ethic. So it only makes sense to pair the sea goat with a social media app that connects others with their ideal professions.
Tumblr is a short-form blog site and within its pages, the user can find a wealth of information and knowledge. Aquarians love to share their ideas and they love to hear about the ideas of others. But sometimes it can be hard for the introverted to connect with people. But this site’s dashboard feature opens them up to a world of ideas and viewpoints.
Remember when I said Cancer was one of the most creative signs in the zodiac? Well, Pisces will happily fight for that title, because we all know that the mutable water sign is bursting with creativity. And a great way for them to express that creativity is to visit the literature platform Wattpad. The site will allow them to bring their stories to life.
Ophiuchus is not a real zodiac sign and sadly MySpace is no longer a real social media site. Sure there is a site with the domain name. But Millenials and Gen X know that it is not the same. May we always remember the golden age of MySpace and its creator, Tom, who was inexplicably everyone’s friend.
