Social Media

Social Media!  Well some of you might still be wondering just what is Social Media?” Social Media is generally defined as “websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.”  Some of the popular forms and the ones I tend to use include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Blogs and more! The definition given above can be a bit misleading.  Because of the word “social”, some assume it is a big waste of time or just something for the kids or movie stars.  With this misconception, many can miss out on the myriad uses of social media that involve advocacy, building businesses, student projects, news updates, political involvement and more. Social media can be very serious and is big business for many!

How to get started?
