Probably we need to run a survey to find out what New Media or Social Media means to the consumer….while New Media is defined by communicators and commentators with interesting descriptions, my feeling is that the end-users do not perceive it in that fashion.
New Media to me means – an ability to be heard, an opportunity to explore and a forum to connect with like minded individuals.
I did a search on royalty free image websites for ‘New Media’. What was interesting to find common threads around people, technology and the feeling of accomplishment.
