What is Social Media?

Social media is media-based tools used for sharing information online. The information being share can be anything from content and pictures to videos and music. Social media includes social networks and online communities where people with similar interests meet online to share, create, network and interact. In the simplest terms, social media is people having conversations online.

Social media is changing the ways people discover and share information. Information sharing is becoming more social and interactive. People are no longer passive, waiting for information to come to them. Everyone is involved in searching for, creating and sharing information. We are all experts in something and it is our responsibility to share that knowledge with the world – social media makes that possible.
