Today marks Mashable’s 6th annual Social Media Day. The online digital culture bible first launched Social Media Day back in 2010 as a way to celebrate the impact of social media on modern society and how it has revolutionised the way we communicate.
Social Media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter allow us to keep in touch with our family and friends, and also strike up conversations with people we’ve never met before. It’s hard to believe that Social Media hasn’t been around for very long. It was only in 2002-2003 when social networking sites like Friendster, LinkedIn and Myspace really took off. Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook opened to the general public in 2006 and its business model and innovative features are the reasons why it’s still remains so popular today.
With the rise of mobile computing, photo and video sharing applications like Instagram and Snapchat utilises the convenience of smartphones and the ability for us to exist on multiple platforms to once again change how we communicate entirely.
Through social media, we have been able to easily converse with our customers and fans, and also convey important information in real time. We love reading each and every comment/feedback and truly appreciate everyone’s support over the past 11 years!
