Not Getting Social Media?

March 6, 2009

Hey, just found this on the “Know How 4 Me” blog and needed to share it.

Recently I have been reading a lot of blogs and comments about the purpose and definition of Social Media – and it’s clear to me that there is a variety of opinions on the topic.

I believe this is a good summary by Lee LeFever for people who are trying to wrap their heads around it.

Social media is not Advertising, nor is it marketing! It is a tool in which people can share information. It can certainly be used as a marketing tool, just as all other media can, but it is not marketing by definition.

I hope this helps, and if you have a different opinion on what Social Media is, let me here it.

    This is a great video explaining Social Media in an easy to understand manner. You are so right…it can be hard to define it.
