The Real Meaning.
Social media is transforming our lives in more ways than we can imagine. These two words give life and a platform for many to express themselves to the world. This is a good thing, but sometimes it is downright scary when you think about the amount of information that is exposed (willingly or unwillingly).
Everyday millions of people cling to their cell phones and other mobiles devices to communicate. Attempting to categorize or control the elements of social media is becoming more difficult. The truth is, social media is everywhere and has a different meaning depending on the context.
At the core of social media is self-expression, the content you want to share and how you want to share it. Due to the ever-changing landscape of technology, the definition of social media will likely remain forever fluid. This lack of specificity gives us the freedom to define social media in our own words and on our own terms.
What does social media mean to you? Does it only represent platforms such as FaceBook, Twitter or Snapchat? Is it the act of being social on any mobile platform? Tell me what your definition of social media is.
