Social Media today….

Social Media Today

There are so many explanations of Social Media, but I liked this one:

          *Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein define social media as “a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user generated content.”

I would like to ask, what Social Media means to you?

I been thinking what Social Media means to me, and the only answer I could come up with is – Connectivity.

Connectivity is a way of connecting one person with others. There are different connections, from personal to business.
As I said this is my way of explaining what social media means to me, but its different for other people.
Every person has different opinion about the whole mater.

There are many examples of social media, those are:
1. Facebook
2. Twitter
3. YouTube
4. Flickr
5. MySpace
6. WordPress
7. Blogger

and many others….

Social Media has good and bad sides, like everything else. The examples of good and bad sides of social media could be interpreted as one coin with two sides. You can see for yourself what I mean with it:

1. Connectivity
Good – connecting with your friends, family, colleagues, business partners, etc…
Bad – putting yourself in danger by connecting with someone you wouldn’t like to get connected to.

2. Ability to find people/information’s
Good – finding old friends, school friends, people that you forgot
Bad – finding strange and dangerous people; finding some bad information’s about your self or your family

3. Exposure
Good – free exposure for yourself; free advertisement for your business;
Bad – anyone could expose everything about you to other people, other companies, etc…

After all of that we seam to be even more addicted to social media.

Some experts are saying that social media could be “drug of the future”, because our addiction towards the social media is unreal. We try to inform the whole world what are we doing, with whom and where are we doing it. People are shameless today. They would post anything on the net:

So think about it before you post something on your Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, next time…


If you know how to use it and you don’t regret on the end…
Happy twitting and blogging…

Hope you enjoyed it.
