Social Networking and Social Media Connecting for fun, pleasures, and business too.
Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Always nice to have you visit, and passing by. Among many things that are discussed today is Social Networking, or also known as Social Media. I went to Wikipedia to get a more understandable definition of this for us. Social Networking Service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, who, for example, share interests and/or activities and people with similar or somewhat similar interests, backgrounds, and/or activities make their own communities. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events, and interests within their individual networks. If you go to Wikipedia you will be able to read what I have printed here, and much more that is said as well too. Don't just the meaning of this, but also see what else is all said as you follow down the page reading. Very interesting.
Any Website that invites you to interact with the site, and with other visitors falls into the definition of Social Media. We see the word Social Media, and it can mean many things which instrumental is some of our first thoughts. But, as you read further you can also understand how it pertains to the issues of Social Networking too. I found the definition for this to be at http://www.webtrends.about.com/od/web20/a/social-media.htm. Feel free to give it a visit to also read a little bit about this too.
Social Networking can be a great home on the Web. It can help you connect with people, or reconnect with long-lost friends, and it can even help your career by making business contacts too. Social Networks range from friends-based networks like FB, and My Space to music, and movie networks like Flixster, and Last.FM to business Social Networks like LinkedIn, and XING. I found this little tidbit with http://www.webtrends.about.com/old/socialnetworking/u/list-of-social-networks-guide.htm
Make sure to come back, and visit LilacsNDreams again. My next posting I am working on I am hoping to cover different Social Networks, or Social Medias that are being used, and try to give a brief idea of what they do as well. Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams today. Hope this was helpful to you. This is a growing area, and is still growing with questions of what is it, do I need to be involved, what can it do for me, what can it do for my business, which ones should I use, and so on.
See ya'll again soon. Have a Happy Day Everyone!:)
