Mashable launched Social Media Day in 2010 as a way to recognize and celebrate social media’s impact on global communication. While every day is essentially Social Media Day, June 30th, 2016 marks the seventh-annual official global celebration
Last year, meet-ups happened all over the world including those in Egypt, Spain, and San Diego. No matter where you live, you can celebrate with us!
Locally, we’ll be celebrating with our 6th Annual Community Chalk Tweet, presented by the WEtech Alliance Social Media Superheroes. Last year’s theme was the introduction of our Official Regional Hashtag, #YQG. This year’s theme will be #YQG❤️ (more on this in a minute).
JOIN THE PARTY
Participating is easy and can be done from wherever you are in Windsor-Essex!
- Get some chalk (this step is kind of important)
- On Thursday, June 30th use the aforementioned chalk to draw stuff, on stuff – sidewalks, parking lots, parks, whatever you want. You can draw/write anything you’d like. Be creative & have some fun with it! You can check out pics from last year’s event HERE for inspiration.
- Include our 2 official event hashtags whenever possible (in chalk & online): #YQG❤️ & #SMday.
- Encourage others to participate as well (be sure to have some extra chalk available for others to use). Last year we left some chalk out on the sidewalk for passers-by to JOIN THE PARTY!
- Take some pics & spread the word on Social Media. Don’t forget the 2 hashtags!
- Join us for our offical Social Media Day After Party! (keep reading for details…)
