Social media definition:

We use the term “social media” to describe any tools for sharing what you know, including (but not limited to): blogs, photo/video sharing, social networks, mobile apps, texting, digital TV services, wikis, gaming and collaboration tools.

Remember - it's the way you use it that makes it social.
