What is Social Media?

December 19, 2007

In a nutshell social media describes online communities where members can communicate and socialize. Blogs, forums, wikis, video and photo sharing sites, social bookmarking and news sites and virtual reality sites are all all examples of social media. Here is a collection of links to help you get a better understanding:

Social Media E-Book – By Spannerworks provides information about the different types of social media sites.

Social Media Page – On Wikipedia provides a detailed definition along with examples of social media sites.

What is Social Media? – By Robert Scoble accurately describes social media by comparing it to traditional media.
