What is Social Media?
Social Media is the future of communication, a countless array of Internet based tools and platforms that increase and enhance the sharing of information. This new form of media makes the transfer of text, photos, audio, video, and information in general increasingly fluid among Internet users. Social Media has relevance not only for regular Internet users, but business as well.

Platforms like Myspace, Facebook, and Linkedin have created online communities where people can share as much or as little personal information as they desire with other members. The result is an enormous amount of information that can be easily shared, searched, promoted, disputed, and created.

Social Bookmarking tools and news sites such as Digg, Delicious, Mixx, and countless others make finding specific websites increasingly simple by assigning or “tagging” individual sites with search able key words.

Applications that have developed within and around these platforms, websites, and tools are endless in number and functionality, but all make online sharing and searching easier in some fashion, regardless of their niche.
