According to the table that have explain the difference between all the apps. Based on my thought I want to advise that LinkedIn and Instagram is the app that is used the most in the public sector. They have o make sure to improve the working department and the features of their apps. This will help the people to explore more and this will increase the use rate of the apps in the market. Both of the apps have to increase their market and the contingency with the people. This will increase the use rate of the people of their apps as the unemployment increase in the market due to the pandemic situation in the society. As they have to increase the extending level of their app use (Auxier, et al., 2021).




Based on the data above details and the information of the using app and their details. The company has to provide a better level of cybercrime and protection from the cyber risk in the society so that people use their app more freely.
