Social Media
What Is Social Media?
The term social media refers to a computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and information through virtual networks and communities. Social media is internet-based and gives users quick electronic communication of content, such as personal information, documents, videos, and photos. Users engage with social media via a computer, tablet, or smartphone via web-based software or applications.

Social Media Today
Many social media sites cater to specific audiences. Some are organized around a common interest, such as cars or sports. Others are aimed at certain age groups.

Politicians and celebrities have tapped into social media. Their friends lists can number in the tens of thousands. Performers use social media to alert fans to upcoming shows. Social media is also useful to social groups. These include sports teams, clubs, and charities. Even when away from the computer, people can remain connected through mobile devices. Instant messaging (IM) also keeps people connected. IM is a type of real-time online chat.

Social media has become a powerful tool for social change. It is often used to raise awareness about important issues. Social media often spurs people to take action. It helps to raise money for charity. And it provides an outlet for people to call on political and business leaders for reform. Social media has changed the way we all interact with each other online. It gives us the ability to discover what's happening in the world in real-time, to connect with each other and stay in touch with long-distance friends, and in order to have access to endless amounts of information at our fingertips. In many senses, social media has helped many individuals find common ground with others online, making the world seem more approachable.
