Michael Haenlein a PHD holder in marketing defines social media as "a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content."

As for me I would simplify social media as an interface of interaction whereby certain or various individuals create, exchange or even share informations in the virtual networks or communities.

Maybe social media might sound a different meaning to you in your own perspective.
