  • Definition
    • Social Media
    • “ is content created by people using highly accessible and scalable publishing technologies. At its most basic sense, social media is a shift in how people discover, read and share news, information and content . It's a fusion of sociology and technology, transforming monologues (one to many) into dialogues (many to many) and is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into publishers . Social media has become extremely popular because it allows people to connect in the online world to form relationships for personal and business . Businesses also refer to social media as user-generated content (UGC) or consumer-generated media (CGM).”
