Default What Is Social Media

Social media is a phrase being tossed around a lot these days, but it can sometimes be difficult to answer the question of what is social media. If MySpace is a social media site, and Mag.nolia is a social media site, and Wikipedia is a social media site, then just what is social media?

I would put it this way, all the sources of information may be called social media (in case it's not your old neighbour lady)

Social media is a gossipers' room (or place on the net) where people can tell others what they know or what this that is truth.

Sadly, social media is blowing up and I'm afraid it might go the way of the .commers.. at least they didn't have the Federal Reserve Bank pumping Fiat Cash into it..

Default RE: What is social media

Social media is a great way to interact with people from a standpoint of a friend and not just an ad. The reason this is becoming so popular is because in the past 100 years the human mind has been trained to ignore ads as they are commonly displayed.
