I would like to add one more definition of social media from the sea
of all definitions. I usually call it the "OII definition".
"Internet-based platform that allows the creation and exchange of
user-generated content, usually using either mobile or web-based
technologies” (Margetts, John, Hale, & Yasseri, 2015, p. 5).

It could be a book, or a website, but I am attempting to provide appropriate definitions for reddit, 4chan, YikYak, etc.
