Social Marketing and Regular Marketing

Social marketing is nothing but regular marketing in the social market place.
The subject is different (and thus the instruments differ). But the basic methodologies come from traditional marketing, even the four P's still apply. Social marketeers tend to disagree because of the commercial connotation of 'marketing'. In my opinion (a traditional marketeer with some education on social marketing as well), the difference is mostly emotional, driven by the experts themselves.
