What is social media?
Social media is integrated Web-based technology that allows users to generate content and then share that content through various connections. Examples of social media include blogs, social networking sites, microblogging sites, photo- and video-sharing sites, wikis, mashups, and virtual worlds. With millions of active users on hundreds of sites, social media has become the way people do business, engage with others, and share and gather information. Social media is one of the many tools law enforcement can use to communicate with their community.
