Social Media relies on user-generated content for people to share and discuss. Subscribers to social media sites usually become both readers and publishers of content with interaction and communication between fellow users playing a key role in spreading the word.

The content shared can come in many forms including:

  • text
  • images
  • videos
  • audio

Social Media is usually fast moving with a constant stream of new information being created.
