deviantART is a social media site.dA has made some significant changes lately, and I've been reading the comments from both sides of the fence.

"deviantART is NOT a social media site!"
To be blunt, this is incorrect and displays an ignorance of what social media is. I blame Facebook - it's popularity has highjacked the definition of social media in the public consciousness. A quick Google search gives a succinct definition of the term:
