What is Social Media?

So I started this blog primarily to demonstrate the intersection of the web and new media with traditional organizing techniques and advocacy campaigns for organizations, individuals, and businesses.

But before we can really delve into that topic, it’s still important to answer the important, yet basic, question- what the f**k is social media?

I came across this fabulous slideshow over at Mashable, one of the best resources on the interwebs for all-things social media. Marketing Director Marta Kagan pulled together an awesome presentation that really demonstrates the power of the social web and how one post, by one person, can turn viral and affect millions of people world-wide.

For those interested in checking out Marta’s original presentation, check it out here.
