What is social media for mobile?

I've been involved in a lot of things over the past year and a half, but the biggest one that I've been engaged on has been the thought of social media in mobile.
First, this should be broken down in three pieces.
1) Connection to the social network
2) Connection to the media services in mobile
3) Destination sites to manage this content
Blogging is social media. These are my thoughts meant for sharing. With that being said, I think that it's a bigger phenomenon that people are finally capturing and sharing the content from their cell phones. Regardless of quality, it's clear that there are a lot of pieces that should continue to move forward.
Higher quality pictures and video are now possible in mobile, and new content management pieces are everywhere. New ecosystems are emerging with the social networks, operators, handset vendors, and destination sites trying to see how to create the best possible user experience for the widest range of people.
I think that before social media become a phenomenon in mobile, media itself is ready to make new things possible for everyone in the very near future.
