Discussion points that arose from previous lectures
Q: Can Whatsapp be defined social media although it is frequently used for private chatting between two people?
A: “Social media are electronic communication platforms that convey content generated and exchanged by networks of users” (Kaplan & Haenlein, 2010).
According to the academic definition, Whatsapp might be considered a social media platform as the technology of Whatsapp is based on electronic platforms and the content is generated and exchanged (in many times as a form of information-forwarding) by more than two end users just like email.
Any other thoughts?
