In technical terms, social media refers to a variety of Web-based applications (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, et al) that facilitate (1) communication and collaboration amongst users of the Internet and (2) the creation of "user-generated content" in the form of words, pictures, audios and videos.

Social media tools such as social networks, blogs and podcasts are now commonly used to market products and services to consumers.
