  5. 5. Social media is media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques. Social media uses Internet and web-based technologies to transform broadcast media monologues (one to many) into social media dialogues (many to many). It supports the democratization of knowledge and information, transforming people from content consumers into content producers…… Businesses also refer to social media as user-generated content (UGC) or consumer-generated media (CGM). Social media utilization is believed to be a driving factor in the idea that the current period in time will be defined as the Attention Age . Source: Wikipedia.com What is Social Media?

  71. 76. What is a Blog? A  blog  (a  blend  of the term  web log )  is a type of  website  or part of a  website . Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.  Blog  can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog . Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal  online diaries . A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs,  Web pages , and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art ( Art blog ), photographs ( photoblog ), videos ( video blogging ), music ( MP3 blog ), and audio ( podcasting ).  Microblogging  is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.
