    The definition of social media is the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue. Social networking, on the other hand, is a social structure with people who are joined by a common interest.

    Social media is a way to transmit, or share information with a broad audience. Everyone has the opportunity to create and distribute. All you really need is an internet connection and you’re off to the races.

    On the other hand, social networking is an act of engagement. Groups of people with common interests, or like-minds, associate together on social networking sites and build relationships through community.

    In my opinion social networking is a public networking is composed of people that are linked with one another by particular type of assurance. It could be the ideas, principles, business, anythings.. And Social media is like a channel which is often used for communication. It is a way to deliver one’s message and enables one to raise his voice. You don’t have to visit some office or a particular place to take benefit from social medias...

    Social Media is the platform that connects people around the corner of the world to connect to each other and share experiences, ideas and help to build global communication, on the other hand Social Networking is a kind of active participation in groups who share common interests, Social media helps to connect to the world digitally, but Social networking helps to connect virtually as well as physically.
