Check Icon Analysis

To better explain this word, let’s take the example of a famous actor. You may see that person in movies, on TV, in magazines or newspapers, on billboards etc., or hear others talking about them. In such a case, it would seem to be impossible to avoid seeing or hearing about them, therefore they can be called ‘ubiquitous’. The term can also be used in reference to an object.
