THe Social meDia's Characteristics! participation

connectedness social media encourages contributions and feedback from everyone who is
interested. It blurs the line between media and audience. most social media services are open to feedback and participation. They encourage voting, comments and the sharing of information. There are rarely any barriers to accessing and making use of content password-protected content is frowned on. social media is better seen as a two-way conversation. social media allows communities to form quickly and communicate effectively.Communities share common interests, such as a love of photography, a political issue or a favourite TV show Most kinds of social media thrive on their connectedness, making use of links to other sites, resources and people. HOW DOES SOCIAL MEDIA WORK? Social networks on the web are like contained versions of the sprawling blog network. People joining a social
network usually create a profile and then build a network by
connecting to friends and contacts in the network, or
by inviting real-world contacts and friends to join the
social network. These communities retain the interest of their members by being useful to them
and providing services that are entertaining or help them to expand their networks.
MySpace, for instance, allows members to create vivid, chaotic home pages (they’ve
been likened to the walls of a teenager’s bedroom) to which they can upload images,
videos and music. MySpace has built a lot of its popularity around its music services. There are said to
be over three million bands and musicians registered on it, trying to attract a fan base
from the 200 million registered accounts. According to Hitwise, in September 2006
MySpace was the 8th largest referrer of traffic to HMV.co.uk, more even than the
MSN search engine. http://www.iCrossing.com/ebooks SO..HOW BIG A DEAL IS SOCIAL MEDIA?

members. THANK YOU :)
