The search engine marketing firm, Spannerworks, has launched an ebook giving a 'primer' to social media.
The book, What is Social Media?, has been written by the firm's Head of Content and Media and fellow blogger, Antony Mayfield.
It looks good. I haven't read it all yet but I will definitely be ploughing through it at some point in the near future.
One thing it's already taught me is that as terminology and technology change rapidly, getting a grip of the basics is essential. Get them wrong and everything else risks not making sense - or at least falling into place easily!.
Kudos to Antony for bringing out a primer on the topic. It certainly helps set a standard for understanding social media.
