WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA?
“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 TikTok, Facebook, Snapchat YouTube, Twitter, and more. What they have in common is they enable users to connect with one another to share user-generated content (UGC). If you really want to know what social media is and how it's being used today look to the young people in your life! They "love" social media, watch our videos below to learn why.
