World Social Media Day: Ways Of Celebrating It

For those of you who aren’t aware it’s World Social Media day and we thought we should talk a bit about it and the different ways of celebrating it. Social Media has such a wide spectrum of things included within its walls such as social networking and campaigns that are run by companies to allow them to gain interest in their products and services.

It’s funny how we are starting to get “a day” for so many different things but personally I think World Social Media Day is a good idea as it can be used in different ways. In other words you can use it to raise awareness of the things that are becoming more important in our technologically advanced.

We have recently read an article over on Mashable by Vadim Lavrusik who talked about some of the ways that Social Media Day is being celebrated and some of the reasons behind why we celebrate the day. He mentions that Social Media has empowered us to stay connected to each other and also to information in real time.

One of the ways that Social Media Day is being celebrated is by using Mashable’s social community that you can view on this link. Unlike other days that are celebrated there’s no public holiday associated with the event however as with many things, this can change.

One of the ways that you can participate in Social Media day is by tweeting to #smday; we expect this to start trending with more and more people recognizing its meaning. There’s even a dedicated website presented by Mashable which you can check out on this link.

Of course, Mashable aren’t the only ones celebrating, Facebook has asked on their Twitter page which charity the fans want them to honor. The fans have spoken and they have chosen the International Comm of the Red Cross, it’s nice to see things like this happening.
