Social Media is definitely playing a big role in our daily life due to technology progressing. We can gain so many benefits for our career and life by using it efficiently; however, many people still can’t tell what exactly the definition of Social Media is. For instance, I’ve heard some people are confused about what’s different between Social Media and Social News. In short, Social Media contains a lot of things, and Social News is one of them.
Media is an instrument on communication, sharing information just like a newspaper or a television. You can watch the news or reports on television, but you won’t be able to give your thoughts back at that moment. On the other hand, Social Media is different because it allows you to communicate and interact with other website visitors (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube…etc).
Also, Using Social Media is very common today. Businesses use it on marketing products, promoting brands reputation, and connecting with more customers. The goal is to create more compelling content and make users share it with their social networks, increase the popularity of brands at meanwhile.
