In general terms, functionality refers to what hardware and software ‘can do’ for a prototypical user. Functionality, in the context of social media, can be said to refer to a set of functions or capabilities associated with a particular social networking service. Thus, when elaborating on functionality it becomes important to recognize that it has a sub-structure consisting of self-contained units of computational code, or functions. In computer science, a function is an independent part of a program’s entire code that instructs the computer to perform a specific assignment.
