SOCIAL MEDIA DAY 2022 : ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT
With the amount of time most of us spend on social media these days, you could call almost every day a social media day. But, believe it or not, there is a day dedicated to social media. Yes, it is appropriately named Social Media Day. Mashable came up with the concept of #SMDay in 2010. They wanted to recognise the growing influence of social media in global communications in recent years. It has since grown to be a truly global event, recognised and celebrated in countries ranging from the United States (of course) to Egypt and Spain.
WHAT AND WHEN IS SOCIAL MEDIA DAY?
Mashable founded Social Media Day in 2010, which takes place on June 30 each year. It began as a way to recognise social media’s enormous impact on global communication; however, the holiday’s impact has only grown since its inception.
Social media has woven itself into the fabric of everyday life, from allowing users to reconnect with old friends to fundamentally altering the landscape of marketing and advertising. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, TikTok, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Reddit — the list of social platforms are endless.
Even in the last decade, the vast expanse of social networking on the internet has evolved from being primarily accessible via computer monitor screens to be accessible from the palm of your hand.
