    SMM(Social media marketing) which is also known as Social Media Optimization is used to provide additional channel for customer support it is basically a media by which one can attract their customer and manage their reputation over the web. Relevance to the customer is the key factor here to get success it is basically used to create content in order to attract the readers and even encourage them to the spread the same on the social networks and in this way one can spread message form user to user as the content or the article is coming from the trusted and the third-party source. You can say that this kind of marketing strategy is running by word-of-mouth and it results in earned media instead of paid media. Hope that helps.

    The rules that you have specified is quite old there has been a set of new rules which has been updated by the experts and it is being followed now. Just take a look at them.
    • Make contents that are shareable and interesting
