Published by Social Media Specialist D. Batuhan Kurtçu

I, Doğukan Batuhan Kurtçu was born in 1997 at a metropolis of Turkey named Izmir. Computer literacy and social media networks were always attracting me. When I first got introduced to Facebook, I knew it was game-changing. Not just for me but it was game-changing for human communication and socializing as well. I knew the future of human sociology and interactions were getting built upon some free-to-use social network pages. I wish to mention that, back then even being able to ‘like’ something was a massive thing. Time flies. I adapted to it.I went to a local high school and was good with verbal classes as I recall. At that time, I was working for a local radio station and newspaper host as a reporter and designer. Then I was honored to attend the University of Istanbul for a whole four years. My degree was completely unrelated to my career plans. However, it is what it is though, here I am.My expertise is especially for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and some other social media networks. I am creating content about social media for some years now and blogging is with me since my early years as a teenager.Now, I wish to express and share my information on social media and it's regarding topics as I feel experienced and well-informed enough by now. I am currently preparing content tirelessly for the readers of blogs like BIF, IF, and GlowInsta. I accomplished much by helping people to take their social network matters into their own hands but, yet still, I feel like I have so much to do.Will you be with me on my journey for optimization of conscious social network use? I will be glad to set you free from the confusing dynamics of social media, as we all know, only the truth can set us free.
