What are Social Media?

Social media refer to on-line tools used by people to connect to others electronically. Connections are made through the world wide web using social network sites (SNS) specifically created for this purpose. Popular sites include MySpace, Facebook and Friendster, which are free. The sites are supported by advertising embedded on the pages next to user-generated content, which can include text, pictures and video.

Social networks can be thought of as public or semi-public forums. They allow people to maintain or create relationships and meet on-line for conversation and collaboration. These relationships can be with one person, a few, or many people.
