Social Media consists of websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. Social media was designed to allow people to share content quickly and efficiently. These applications and websites have contributed to the phenomena of news spreading across the world in real time. Years ago, it would take hours and even days for news to spread from one side of the world to another. Now, news can be spread within minutes through the power of social media. Many people would define social media as applications on their smartphones or tablets, but the history of social media actually started with computers. Social media websites like Myspace and Facebook were originally only accessible on a computer.
