Social media effectively helps our modern society in a number of ways. Social websites enable us to communicate with people from all over the world no matter of their location. Also, social media platforms offer us real-time news and information on nearly every topic. Social media platforms allow our voices to be heard even in times of crisis and informational blackout.
This positive side of social websites has inspired the Social Media Day. That is right! Now there is a particular day, dedicated to the new media trend. Moreover, it is celebrated this month!
Originally, the event was first celebrated back in 2010. The main purpose of the day was and still is the recognition and the celebration of the technological revolution, which we are witnessing today.
However, the event quickly started to enjoy a growing popularity. Not after long, it was even recognized as an official day of celebration in some regions of the world, including the US. As a result, many people are now preparing to mark the Social Media Day on June 30th (Sunday).
