What is the difference between social networking and social media?

Category: Social Networking


Social media can be defined as the strategy or means for sharing and distributing information. Social networking, on the other hand, is the utility that is used to do it. Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and Linkedin are perfect examples of Web 2.0 applications that encompass both social media and social networking. These sites provide a platform for users to create and share information with other users of similar interests.
