Social Media Day June 30
Social media has revolutionized how we talk to each other around the world.
June 30, 2018: Social Media Day
In 2010, the digital publisher Mashable.com decided that it would nice to recognize the impact that social media has had on how we communicate.
Through the various social platforms, we’re able to connect with friends, make new friends, and grow our networks on a global scale. Even businesses have recognized the value of social media for connecting with customers and selling their product, as well as quickly updating users about problems affecting their service.

Social Media Day was launched to encourage fans of social media (and Mashable’s site) to get together at real life meet-ups.
Social media is everywhere these days. First there was the telephone, then the fax machine, then social media — a revolutionary way of communicating. World Social Media Day on June 30 was born as a way to recognize the important role it plays in our society and to celebrate the way it has connected us!
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 with Facebook live in your face. Even if Facebook and Twitter aren’t for you, there’s still blogging, Instagram, Vine, Snapchat and even LinkedIn, among many others.
Since the birth of social media, people have been able to connect with each other like never before. Marketers have been able to reach consumers in an entirely new fashion. Just look around and you will see people using social media at all times of the day.
