Happy Social Media Day! In case you didn’t already know, Social Media Day is a celebration of how social media has helped us to connect, engage, create, and educate.
Social Media Day 2018
Whether you use it every day or you’re not even sure how to use it, there is no denying the impact that social media has played in our personal lives, our homes, our families, our businesses, our cities, and our culture, and although we all may not agree on how we use it, we can’t lie, there have been some positive things that come from the social media revolution.
According to Mashable, the creator behind Social Media Day, today is a day to honor technological and societal advancements that have allowed us to have dialogues, and to connect with not only the creators of media but one another. “It’s a day to celebrate the changes in media that have empowered us to stay connected to information in real time, the tools that have enabled us to communicate from miles apart, and the platforms that have given a voice to the voiceless…” Mashable says.
Social Media and You
If you really think about it, how many people do you know because you saw them under your “mutual friends” on Facebook? How much has your business grown thanks to the reviews and likes left on your business page? How many professional connections have you made because of LinkedIn? How often do you receive news faster and more frequently on Twitter than you do on a night time news show? Have you been inspired by the weight loss journey you’ve seen on Instagram, or maybe inspired someone else by a quote you shared?
Today, you can participate in Social Media Day by using the #smday or #socialmediaday hashtag on Twitter to see updates on Mashable’s Social Media Day. You can also use this opportunity to connect with someone new through Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and share something with your friends or follows using the hashtags previously mentioned.
This social media day, use your voice to share your story, connect with one another, or learn something new!
