  • When you think of the word social, an informal get-together might come to mind. Social media can used to gathering friends together, but the social in social media refers to a collaborative community as opposed to an individual.
  • When Web 2.0 was created in 2006, the World Wide Web went from a collection of published content viewed by passive recipients to a stream of two-way communication between the content publishers and active participants. The ability for communication to flow in both directions allowed websites to become social– users could collaborate on site content and build a virtual community online.
  • By far, the most influential social media sites are Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Google recently released a social network to compete with Facebook. Google+ has similar features plus the tie-in with the popular Google products like the Google search engine, Reader, YouTube, and Google Docs.
  • Social networks are sites where people make connections with others. Most have a specific purpose. Meetup, for example, is a network for finding and posting events.
  • Micro blogs are miniature weblogs. Entries on microblogs can be no more than 140 characters. The most popular microblog is Twitter. A posting on Twitter is called a Tweet. Users can subscribe to, or follow, each other’s tweets. They can forward a tweet to their own network of followers, using a retweet.

  • Social bookmarking sites contain links to websites of interest within a network of users. One of the most popular bookmarking sites is Pinterest. This site resembles a collection of bulletin boards populated with photos from various websites that are “pinned” to the board. Like other social media sites, users can subscribe, or follow, interesting boards so they are notified when the owner pins new photos.
