  • Why do you differentiate between Social Media and blogging?? Blogging is a social medium, and should be part of a Social Media strategy (Social Media is more than just social networks)
    And how can you compare Social Media Marketing with SEO? SMM is how social media affects the Marketing (capital M) function. Marketing is customer care, and online research, and PR. SEO is just a tiny portion of Marketing?
