Social media

(Context: General)

Though many definitions exist, it is consistently characterized as the collection of Web tools that facilitate collaboration and information sharing. Web-based communities and hosted services include social-networking sites, video, and photo sharing sites, wikis, blogs, virtual worlds, and other emerging technologies.

The Virginia Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) defines social media as a “(f)orm of online communication or publication that allows for multi- directional interaction. Social media includes blogs, wikis, podcasts, social networks, photograph and video hosting websites, crowdsourcing and new technologies as they evolve.
