Introduction to social media
Social networking on social media websites involves the use of the internet to connect users with their friends, family, and acquaintances. Social media websites are not necessarily about meeting new people online, although this does happen. Instead, they are primarily about connecting with friends, family, and acquaintances you already have. The most well-known social media platforms are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. These websites allow you to share photos, videos, and information, organize events, chat, and play online games. Often, each of your “friends” (Facebook) or “followers” (Twitter) will be connected to each other. Just like in real life, the connections between people are not just one-on-one, but a network of connections. This online social network is useful for spreading information, pictures, and videos and generally staying in touch with people you would not normally get to interact with all the time. For example, you can easily set up a Facebook page with details and pictures of an event you might be planning, such as a school fete. The page allows you to easily send out invitations to other users of the social media platform.
