In these pages, i want to give a gentle introductions to this comunication word, show the benefits,and offer possible advice about social media works. The reason to start with this guide is for understanding realy simply interactive communication between creators and receptions of informations .Whears mainstream media ( MSM) such as newspaper, TV , radio and magazines are traditionally one way devices , the Social Media allows players, protagonists, punidits and public to interect and build rapport more easily than ever before. Furthermore, presentation and publishing is possible for everyone Then different ways of using terms and forms of new media, make the new “social” nature of sciences and art..

The Social Meda or “ How I learnd to stop worrying and love communications” is best understood as a group of new kinds of online media which share most or all of the following characteristics:

Participation: social media encourages contributions, colaborations and feedback from everyone who is interested. Openness: most social media services are open to feedback and participation. They encourage voting, feedback, comments and sharing of information. There are rarely any barriers to accessing and making use of content – passwordprotected content is frowned on. Conversation: whereas traditional media is about “broadcast”, content transmitted or distributed to an audience, social media is better seen as conversational. Community: social media allows communities to form quickly and communicate effectively around common interests – be that a love of photography,art , political issue or a favourite TV show. Connectedness: Most kinds of social media thrive on theirconnectedness, via links and combining different kinds of media in one place.

The basic types of Social Media are blogs, social networks, content communities ( called falksonomies), wikis and podcasts.. Probably you have heard many of these and using it, but maybe without sense of theirs importance and existence on net.

However , these tools are giving way to a new generation of internet-based tools that allow for far greater levels of two-way interaction, discussion and conversation.
