What is SMS or Short Message Service?

Service that enables short text messages, of no more than 160 characters, to be exchanged between fixed line or mobile phone devices, and other devices (may be sent, for example, from certain Internet platforms). It is a well consolidated system, particularly amongst younger users, who have even developed their own SMS language.

Some social networks such as Twitter or Facebook include the option to update content without having to use a computer, sending updates via SMS or MMS from mobile platforms.

Its use for commercial purposes is called SMS marketing and is the main strategy used for mobile marketing.
