What is Social Media ?? It’s actually come from a word “Social” and “Media” ??
For my understanding, Social media are media for social interaction, using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques.
Most of social media website base on web 2.0 with have an interaction between users. It’s tow ways to communicate between user, First it sender the one who give the information and second is receiver the one who reply, comment or interact one something in social website. For example Blog, it’s have to be a blogger who come to write a blog and then reader who come to read, comment or share to another people. Now a day, if we talk about social media most of people will say ” it is the one that people sharing what they interested into their own facebook page”. Like share video or a picture of Super Star they like. The most popular website that people use to share video is http://www.youtube.com and if someone want to share a video or watch a video which have a good quantity they have to go on http://www.vimeo.com
A lot of thing come up with social media, like social shopping, social network cms but we cannot just pass to talk about Facebook the most popular one in the world. In Thailand can say that more than 10 percent of people already create their own Facebook page.
Social Media also have some kind of social network that was create for some objective like http://www.LinkedIn.com.
LinkedIn is a social network that provide an infomation of people who want to show their profile or their organization to find a job or hire people to work.
Can we said that Social Media is a new thing?? No !! it just recently become a part of mainstream culture and the business world. People have been using digital media for networking, socializing and also information gathering. This has been almost exactly over 30 years. I can’t find the exactly one for social networking but let say SixDegrees is the first. SixDegrees is the one that let user post information of their own then connect to another people, it was create in 1997. Next, we will know the website that base on web 2.0 like Friendster(2002-2003), MySpace(2004-2006) and Facebook from 2007 til now.
