Abstract for “Social Media: A Phenomenon to be Analyzed”

Boyd explores the term social media in the context of a basic break down of its parts but also in its actual definition. Boyd discusses how it is closely related to Web 2.0 as both terms/concepts emerged after the initial collapse of the internet. Web 2.0 is a concept that overarches social media but both concepts came as part of a push to change the internet and progress it. At the stage it is in at present social media can be viewed as a phenomenon.
