I wouldn't go so far as to say it's the new SEO. SEO is optmizing your webpages so that they get ranked higher on the SERPs. SMO is using social media sites to promote your product, services or websites.
SMO is a new method of building links and driving traffic to your site. It affects SEO in that, the more traffic you get to your site, the higher your content/webpages will be ranked by search engines.
Hope that helps. Have a good day!
