What Are Social Media?
what do these buttons do?
Social media let you use the Web to interact with others. This could
be through social networking sites like Facebook or MySpace, where
you can visit with friends and acquaintances. Or it could be through
social bookmarking services, like StumbleUpon, Yahoo! Buzz and
Delicious, where you bookmark Web pages you like and share them with
other users of the same service.
Social media also let you tailor the Web to suit the way you prefer
to use it. Some of the ways you can tailor it include...
buttons let you easily share the Web page you just read on
by adding it to your favorite social media tool. How? Simply
click on its button on the page. There's nothing to download or
you're not yet using any of these social media, you can set up one
after clicking on its button. Once your account is up and running,
you'll be able to share the Web page with friends and family, or
save it for later reading.
course, you're not limited to the buttons you see here. You can use
any of these popular social media, or add a Web page from
to the service you already use.
