Social Media Mom

In this day and age, social media has become a very valuable tool for many people and looks to continue to be popular on into 2008.  But what is social media exactly? Wikipedia describes social media as.....

"Participatory online media where news, photos, videos, and podcasts are made public via social media websites through submission. Normally accompanied with a voting process to make media items become popular"

In other words, it's an on-line conversation that is for the purpose of promoting someone or something.
Whether you're a mom, a business man or an e-commerce owner, promoting videos, images or websites, there are thousands of social media sites that can help you get the exposure you need and the relationships required to make you successful.

Search Engine Roundtable has a great post that lists 60 of the hottest social media websites. My favorites are Stumble Upon, Flickr, and Facebook but many new sites are being added every day in hopes of being the next "big thing".

My suggestion is to find a few sites you like and make the most of them. Don't spread yourself too thin by joining as many sites as you can.  Build your profile on a few sites and create solid relationships. Once you have those sites working for you, then move on to some other ones.

Who knows, you may see a need somewhere and come up with your own idea for a social media site and become the next big thing yourself.
