Media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques. Social media supports the human need for social interaction with technology, transforming broadcast media monologues (one to many) into social media dialogues (many to many).

Businesses also refer to social media as user-generated content or consumer-generated media.

Weblogs (blogs) are easy and efficient ways to get personal viewpoints out into the marketplace. With easy-to-use blog software, anyone can create a professional looking blog in just minutes. Most marketing and PR people know about blogs, and many are monitoring what is being said about their company, products, and executives on this new medium. A significant # of people are also blogging for marketing purposes, some with amazing success. A blog is a Wed site that is created and maintained by a person who is passionate about a subject and wants to tell the world about his or her area of expertise. A blog is almost always written by one person who wants to communicate with the world.

From this course, I have come to learn that although I used to think that social networking on the internet was useless and time consuming, it can actually really work to a person’s advantage. People can get their names out to the public and whether it be finding a job, or making new friends, social networks can open your name to the public and can further your career.
