What "Social Media is

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

Ford Motor Company has a director of it, NAR has hired one, Comcast and Knology both use it to get better.

In fact, Frank the Comcast guy helped me get my cable and cable internet bill lowered 40 bucks a month; I like Frank; I even like Comcast better now. ;-)

So what the heck is "Social Media"?

Wikepedia says it is: "umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words"

Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Magnolia, Digg, and literally hundreds of others websites use and promote it but exactly what the heck is it?

Here's a little YouTube video that has one of the best explainations of social media I've seen. These very creative folk s get credit for this marvelous, easy to understand video.

Common Craft dot com gets full credit for the video.

AR seems to want to call an active link in the comment spam so I can put a hot link in here without disguising it a little.

Jim, Lee's videos are the best.  He breaks things down so simple that even I can understand it the very first time.  I have seen this one, and many others, and they are fantastic.
