“Social Media” is a term used to describe a variety of web-based platforms, applications and technologies that enable people to socially interact with one another digitally. Some examples of social media, or networking, sites (also referred to as SNS’s) and applications include Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and more. What they have in common is they enable users to connect with one another to share user-generated content (UGC).
