What is Social Media?

     What is Social Media?

    The dictionary definition of social media is websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. However, some people would define it as the "Life Destroyer".

    Social media has had a major impact in the business world, in our communities, and most importantly our youth. The impact that Social Media has on our youth is truly significant. In the 21st century our children are growing up with mobile devices in their hands, they have everything from Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Social Media is transforming how people interact with each other on a day to day basis, because as a generation we started to live our lives online.

     Now I'm not trying to say that social media is horrible, because it definitely has two sides. On the positive side, social media can act as an influential tool for business owners, especially if they are trying to get their products in the hands of the youth. However, Social Media will only be useful to the people that know how to use it accordingly, and realize that it is exactly what is said..."Social Media".
