The tools of the new media have definitely taken the world by a storm. The ability of Social Media to ensure connectivity and enforce six degrees of separation like never before, still fascinates us all.
Social Media is what we depend on for news, information, entertainment, getting in touch with people, advertising and so much more. It is about time that a marvelous feature of our lives like Social Media is celebrated and its worth is acknowledged.
About six years ago, the first annual Social Media Day was celebrated. Today, 30th of June, marks the 6th year of this wonderful celebration. Mashable was the first website to start celebrating this day.
The motive behind the celebrations is merely to acknowledge the impact Social Media has had in all our lives. Events are held around the world where hundreds of people meet up within the participating countries.
The best part is that even if you can’t make it to any of these events, one can still post material online with the “#SMDay” tag in the description and be a part of the festivities.
Hopefully, the day gets more popular as each year passes.
