Social Media Day YQG

Launched by multimedia company Mashable in 2010, Social Media Day celebrates social media’s impact on global communication. Saturday, June 30th, 2018 marks the ninth-annual official global celebration.

WEtech Alliance, a non-profit organization helping accelerate technology & innovation-based companies in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent, along with its Social Media Superheroes – a peer-to-peer group of over 30 local social media superheroes that represent a cross-section of our community, including school boards, the media, non-profit organizations and businesses – will once again be celebrating the occasion with their 8th annual Community Chalk Tweet.

WEtech Alliance has partnered with City of Windsor and organizations and businesses including the University of Windsor EPICentre, Cypher Systems Group, Motor City Community Credit Union,, John McGivney Children’s Centre, Pinchin, Parker DKI and Demario’s Auto Clinic to make this a fun, FREE, community event open to all residence and visitors in Windsor-Essex.


All are welcome to join us at Lanspeary Lions Outdoor Rink at Lanspeary Park – 1250 Langlois Avenue in Windsor from 11am-1pm on Saturday, June 30th. This location has a roof, so we’re covered, rain or shine!

The community is invited to grab some chalk favourite things about Canada, Windsor and Essex County.

Participants will then be encouraged to snap a picture of their creation and upload it to social media using the official hashtag #SMdayYQG. #YQG and #SMday are also encouraged secondary hashtags.
