Can someone tell me what you call people who use social media?

08Oct08

Okay, so people who write are writers.  Those who report news are reporters.  Market products or services?  Marketers.

What are people called who communicate online with people — for personal and/or professional reasons?  SM’ers?  SM’ites?

Or, if there’s no noun, what’s the verb?  Bloggers blog.  But what if you use the full array of social media services? 

I feel stupid saying I “use social media” or I engage in online conversations.  Please help!!!

  • SM’ers?
  • SM’ites?
  • Online communicators?

  2. Hey David,

    Great to hear from you. Thanks for your suggestions although they may still need a touch of work! Hope you’re enjoying life at Hopkins. Keep me posted.
