A few months ago, we asked you about your favorite social networking sites—including Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, and Twitter— and now we want to know a little bit about how you use social media. “Social media” is an overarching term that refers to interactive Web sites as a whole, not just social networking Web sites. While this term surely encompasses social networking sites, social media also can refer to blogs and Web sites such as YouTube, Tumblr, Web sites with online discussion forums, and more.

So now we want to know: how do you use social media? Do you blog, watch YouTube videos, post on discussion boards, or share your favorite viral videos and pictures on Tumblr?

To answer the question, you can either submit a comment by writing your response in the “Leave a Reply” box below, or send us a message. As always, we read all comments and consider all feedback.

Don’t forget that you can always respond to questions we’ve asked before; just drop us a comment! We always look forward to hearing from you!
