The rapid growth of Social Media provides organizations with a great deal of information and yet, marketing practitioners seem to have a limited understanding of what Social Media exactly means, how it can be best used and quantified. This article intends to provide some clarification by describing the concept, and emphasize the difference from related concepts.
