Social networking

Key characteristic of the Web 2.0 revolution, this involves chatting, messaging, file sharing, blogging and other forms of interaction between communities of people who share interests and activities. Social networking websites are being used by millions of people everyday and increasingly are recognized by marketeers as a new channel for promotion.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
