(KTVI)- The year 2013 is about to come to an end and it is time to look back.  That includes looking back at what happened in social media, something used by the majority of Americans in one way or another. What were the highs? What were the lows? What are the trends?

In January, Twitter introduced Vine. In June, Instagram launched video sharing, to compete with the growing use of Vine.

Teens  started moving away from Facebook and moving towards Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr.

Hashtags secured mainstream status when they were used in a lot of February Superbowl ads.

Oh, and Twitter became publicly traded stock, filing for an initial public offering of stock in September.
