This is the era of internet and there are a lot of Social Media platforms out there that facilitate the sharing a vast variety of user generated content. LinkedIn is a business and employment oriented social platform whereas Twitter is used to share recent news trends and updates. Pinterest is about discovering new content and ideas while Facebook is more about catching up with friends and family. These networks and virtual communities cast a tremendous amount of influence on their users. Here we have a similar content-oriented platform called Social. It is designed and built for the users to connect and share digital content (like text, images and/or gifs) related to community, social, healthcare and welfare services. MERN stands for MongoDB, ExpressJS, ReactJS and NodeJS (the four key technologies that make the stack) and is used to built this fully responsive web application in conjugation with other APIs and tools.
