Social Media
 
What Is It?
 
 
Delicious is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage and share Web pages from a centralized source. Users post links to stories or other media,write a brief description, and include tags that help when somebody searches for a topic.
 
 
Facebook is a global, privately-owned social networking Web site. Users may add friends and send messages. They may also update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves, their companies or their agencies. Users can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, region and other criteria.
 
 
Flickr is an image and video hosting Web site, Web services, suite, and online community platform. A popular Web site for users to share personal photographs, the service receives wide use by bloggers as a photo repository.
 
 
Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. By "checking in" via a smartphone app or Short Message Service (SMS), users share their location with friends while collecting points and virtual badges. Foursquare guides real-world experiences by allowing users to bookmark information about venues that they want to visit and surfacing relevant suggestions about nearby venues. Merchants and brands leverage the foursquare platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to obtain, engage, and retain cusomers and audiences. 
 
 
LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site mainly used for professional networking.
 
 
Picasa is a software application for organizing and editing digital photos. "Picasa" is a blend of the name of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, and the phrase mi casa for "my house," and "pic" for pictures (personalized art).
 
 
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers (followers). Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends, or by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter Web site, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. While the service itself costs nothing to use, accessing through SMS may incur phone service provider fees.
 
 
YouTube is a privately owned video-sharing Web site that lets users upload and share
videos. Users can organize YouTube content in three ways: YouTube channels, groups and playlists.
