Tuesday June 30, 2015 is Social Media Day, an annual event organized by Mashable that celebrates social media’s impact on global communication and how we live our lives.
Though we often take it for granted, social media hasn’t just revolutionized communication; it has transformed lifestyles – from the way in which we do business to how we make purchases, book vacations and organize events. This is what Social Media Day is designed to highlight. Now in its sixth edition, Social Media Day isn’t just an online initiative; events will be organized all over the world.
In Nairobi, for example, Social Media Day will serve as an opportunity to highlight social media’s impact on the Kenyan economy. In Colombo, it will involve an awards ceremony for effective use of social media for individual achievements and social good projects in Sri Lanka. And in Milan, Italy, the event will spread over not one, but two days, with more than 40 social media professionals presenting case studies.
But regardless of where you are, getting involved in this year’s Social Media Day is easy; simply use the hashtag #SMDay to connect with the event online.
