Default Difference between SMO and SMM

Social Media Optimization includes activities such as making the website more social media friendly so that visitors find it more easy to share the site or page through social media channels such as Facebook, blog, video etc and social media marketing is also an internet marketing strategy which makes use of social media outlets to promote a product which helps you in product promotion and interaction with customers.

Both are the same things.

SMO stand for Social Media Optimization

SMM stand for Social Media Marketing.

Yaah sonamkondal,
I agreed with you but why this two terms are called as different types. Whats the reason people target this as two parts interconnected.

The terms Social Media Marketing & Social Media Optimization are just 2 different words to meaning the same stuff.

SEO - Addiction:
Most likely these words are born out of SEOs (SEOs are addicted to the word "Optimization"). So by that logic these 2 words are more or less different "keywords" of a given process.

Slight difference:
But by logic, the word "Optimization" is considerably different from "Marketing", in theory "optimization" getting the best out of what you have or making changes (or edits, or create new) to make something better suited to something. (here websites are optimized to suit SEs or visitors).

Marketing on the other hands, is purely promoting a business/product (or a Politician ) to increase its (their) reach. And this might include promotional efforts, including paid ads (FB ads or similar).

Thanks Kumar Palani,

I loved your answer, I think my confusion is little bit shorted. Haha that's one I was unable to understand.

SEO and SEM are basically the same, SEO is optimizing pages for the search engines and SEM is marketing the pages for the search engines. The same goes for SMM and SMO just with social media sites instead of normal sites and search engines.
