Different scholars define the concept of social media in different ways, according to their experience, background and knowledge. However, the most commonly quoted definitions were given by Kotler and American. Accordingly, Kotler and Armstrong defined social media as is a form of direct marketing which links users with sellers electronically using interactive technologies like emails, websites, online forums and newsgroups, interactive television, mobile communications and others (Kotler and Armstrong, 2009).
“The term “social media” appeared only recently in the world of professional marketing and communication. It refers to the promotion of products and brands among users, through the use of all digital media and contact points. Although social media has many similarities with Internet marketing, it goes beyond it, since it frees itself from the Internet’s single point of contact and accesses all so-called “digital media,” including, for example, mobile telephony (SMS or applications) and interactive television, as the communication channel. The term “social media” therefore seeks to bring together all the interactive digital tools at the service of marketers for promoting products and services, while seeking to develop more direct and personalized relationships with users.” (Flores, 2014).
