Establishing a personal website is probably one of the coolest things that you can ever do online. If you think having an active social media account is nice. I say maintaining a personal website is a lot better. Basically, the advantage is it can help you stand out among the crowd.
Let us say, it will be easy for your future employers to find you online. They will have access to your personal information, talents, skills, portfolios, resume, and everything. Yes, you can input these pieces of information on your social networking account. But it is more impressive in the eyes of your future boss if you display it on your own website.
Your account on Facebook has a theme, layout, and format that are identical to its 2.7 Billion monthly active users. Except for your cover photo, everything else is the same Also, if anyone will search for your name on the platform, FB will show them names that are similar to yours. It can cause confusion, especially to your prospective employers.

Helping other people through your website is also easier. You can share your latest travel experience, hotel reviews, gadgets, and online stores. When other people search for that topic online, they will be able to read your article for their needed information.
