I have some questions on social “media” prompted by Mike’s post and in particular the comments the post received.
First, can we please agree that social applications and social media are different ideas that sometimes happen together? I think creating this difference would dramatically help the social discussion along by focusing it and making sure people understand exactly what is being discussed in context.
Now, I suppose you could argue that the comments, pods, and so forth are “media”, to which I would ask, then what is your definition of Content? You can’t have it both ways. If Comments are Content, how about Social Content and Social Media as two different ideas?
