June 30th, every year, marks the dawn of another Social Media Day, which recognises and celebrates social media’s impact on global communication.
This year’s Social Media Day marks the seventh-annual official global celebration which was launched by Mashable in 2010.
To join in on the fun and observe the Social Media Day irrespective of where you are, just post something on your favorite social media platform. Find a social media meetup in your area. Use #SMDay when posting and to remind others of this day.
Social media has made it possible to stay connected and informed about those important people in our lives. In its short life, Social media has redefined how people interact, communicate and share with family, friends, and the world.
Social media seems to be everywhere these days. It has become a major factor in the world. Asides the popular Facebook and Twitter, Blogging, Vine, Snapchat and even LinkedIn, among many others are all fruits of the social media.
Even businesses have recognised the value of social media for connecting with customers and selling their product, as well as quickly updating users about problems affecting their service.
A valuable part of social media is the fun in reconnecting with classmates, past work associates and more. It has also made it possible to connect with ancestors and find relatives you never even knew existed. Lol
With the launch of Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003, social media had become mainstream. Then 2004 brought the founding of the king of social media, Facebook.
Twitter encouraged us to be succinct by posting our thoughts with fewer than 140 characters. We can be social through Instagram and Flickr by sharing all the pictures and videos you love.
Videos are not left out as YouTube is the social place for everything from how-to to pop culture to what not to do with your fireworks on the 4th of July.
Pinterest, Tumblr, and WordPress all make sharing and socializing about the latest trends accessible and exciting.
Let your networks know its Social Media Day and spread the knowledge.
Post It! Share It!
