Social Media Day was launched by a popular website called Mashable back in 2010, and often sees fans of the site going to real life meetups.
Social media is everywhere these days.
Though the days of social media pioneer Myspace are now long gone, we’re constantly hearing about trending topics on Twitter, laughing at social media fails and many people are obsessive about keeping up with their Facebook news feed. Even if Facebook and Twitter aren’t for you, there’s still Blogging, Vine, Snapchat, Periscope, Instagram and LinkedIn among many others. Businesses have also 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.
If you have not done so, Like our Facebook page and pose us a question or comment.
Social media has become a major factor in the world. For many, it is how we keep up with what our friends are up to, even if they’re on the other side of the planet. It has also played a big part in world events. Twitter was used to organise protests and report on events during the Arab Spring, for example. Twitter is a great way to keep up with what your favourite celebrities are up to – as long as they don’t just use it to Instagram pictures of their lunch!
If we’re honest, many of us use social media for less than upright purposes ourselves. We use it to show off our holidays and what adventures we have planned for the weekend. Almost everyone presents an idealised version of themselves on social media, whether by de-tagging unflattering photos or implying their life is more exciting and glamorous than it really is.
Make sure you don’t compare yourself negatively to your friends on social media as you’re only seeing what they want you to see!
So how best to celebrate Social Media Day?
Let your networks know and spread the knowledge. Start a hashtag, upload a photo, update your status. You certainly won’t be alone as social media is still spreading like wildfire all over the world.
Better still make time to see the real people in your life, offline, not just virtually online. Maybe this includes your own family?
It’s worth remembering that picking up the phone or visiting, face-to-face is even more important these days.
