Social Media is a term that describes a medium by which individual communicate and share their life experience with one another. Humans as social animals tend to depend on communication as a means of adaptation to their environment, which was not really simple for a lot of people because of factors such as occupation,space,time etc.
Learning and communication have a lot of support from our contact and interaction with our environment. So we can not only think about our life as a social and political entity but as a design that is built on socialization and communication. Media is not only the means by which this communication is transferred from individuals to individuals, particularly when you can imagine how impossible things would have been if we did not communicate with each other.
The importance of socialization has been taken to a new height. With the help of the internet a lot of channels have been opened to the world. This has never been possible in the history of human existence. With social media the world seem to have grown an extra layer of connection that has never been there. We can now share a lot of things across in a very short time.
In the early time, information could only be sent through very slow and really funny means which led to a lot of problems and difficulties that you cannot just imagine. Now that things like time and speed have been taken care off, we are in a phase that would change the way we think and do things forever, which is phenomenal if you think about,we would be able to keep up with our relationship and share precious moment with each other no matter the distance of time. With social media a lot of things can now be shared without the intervention of authority or law.
Social Media should be considered a very useful tool because people of all works of life such as bloggers, marketers, publishers etc. uses it.
The tool is just as fascinating as the first time that television was invented, really because the amount of information that is transfer and received are just too much to measure. So also, is the amount of change and development that the social media has brought about.
At this we can basically do almost anything with the social media.
