Editor’s Corner: Social Media Terms – V

Only a few more social media terms left! Today we’ll visit the vivacious letter “V,” with terms from The Concept Company. (Sorry, Mom!)

· Video Sharing
A type of social network whereby users can upload, manage, and share video media publicly or with their networks, and comment on the videos of others. The most notable example of a video sharing site is YouTube.

· Vlog
A video blog or Vblog that contains videos instead of text entries. Some people call it video podcasting, vodcasting, or vlogging.

· Viral
When a piece of content on the Internet is shared organically, without prodding or encouragement from the business, organization, or person who created it, it is said to have “gone viral.” This means it has been shared on social networks, posted and reposted, tweeted and retweeted multiple times.

· Virtual Event
A live event, such as a trade show or job fair, which takes place on the Web, often in a virtual environment designed to emulate a face-to-face event of the same kind.

And another gem from The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks, though I’d also file this under “Shops I Never Want to Visit.”
