I have never really liked the term social media. All media has the potential to be social. What is really changing financial markets is the power of networks. Networks can be highly social (Twitter, Linkedin) somewhat social (lets not forget Bloomberg or even a Squawk Box as a type of network) or even anti-social (private networks). Financial institutions and financial advisors should be looking for ways to leverage networks, not necessarily media. Content, services, insight, and advice can be delivered and shared among communities of users. I am sure this is a lonely fight, but we should drop the term social media. Rather, we should emphasize the importance and power of networks to change financial markets.
