Social Media Categories
When you start working with Social Media Marketing you need to measure it somehow.
All sites and statistics need a place or category. It just makes it easier to find or gather together.
Danny Sullivan (Guru) made his categorization on his blog.
Here hare his subcategories of Social Media
• Social News Sites
• Social Bookmarking Sites
• Social Networking
• Social Knowledge
• Social Sharing
