Each year I get the privilege of planning one of the largest digital marketing conferences in Texas! I am going to be honest and share with you that it is not easy. Pulling together a spectacular Social Media Day celebration that WOWs the attendees and tops the prior year gets harder and harder.
What makes me do this each year? Because I love social media. Social media enables individuals and business owners from around the world to connect not just locally, but globally. Family and friends share, tweet, Facebook and have conversations in this very public space and most of them love every minute of it.
So why do I encourage everyone to celebrate social media on June 30? Read on and you’ll find out.
What is Social Media Day?
Social Media Day is a worldwide celebration of the technology that allows all of us to connect and communicate with one another on a local, regional, national and even a global level. It celebrates the vibrant communities that now exist on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ and Instagram, just to name a few, and that continue to grow on a daily basis.
How should I celebrate Social Media Day?
There are many ways to celebrate, which I am going to share in great detail below. My favorite being that you join us for the 2015 Rocks Digital Marketing Conference for a great education from some of the nation’s top digital marketing and social media authorities. You can also join us at Mashable’s Social Media Day Tweetup that immediately follows the conference on the 2nd day!
