Most of us use social media each and every day. In fact, Generation Z peeps tend to laugh at their parent’s generations who did not even have social media as children! They can’t imagine such an absence. Social media is a huge part of our lives now. Social Media Day began June 30th, 2010. It was created by Mashable as a way of recognizing the impact that social media has had on communications around the world, as well as bringing people together to celebrate.
We think it’s super cool that Social Media Groups have friends from various countries who enjoy each other’s company online. Differences don’t seem to matter when online – we just seem to appreciate what we have in common. When the horrible COVID Pandemic hit our World a few years back, it was nice to have different forms of social media to still keep in touch and stay engaged with family, friends and even work!
We found 3 simple and reasonable Social Media Day Activities on National Today we think you can consider trying out:
- Post, post, post! – Social media is only as good as the posts on it, so use this occasion to add your voice to the party! Post a selfie, a Tweet, or go live on Instagram or Facebook. *There are no wrong choices here.
- Try new platforms – There are so many social media sites out there waiting for you to discover them. Before you know it, you could be making TikTok videos, sharing your greatest travel adventures on Instagram, or joining in fun trending topics on Twitter. Give some platforms a try and see if you like them. *There tend to be different demographics on each social media platform, see if you can learn some fun, new ideas and interests of people not exactly like you today! 😉
- Take it offline – Social media can bring people together, but sometimes it’s most special when your Internet friends become your IRL friends. In honor of Social Media Day, hang out with a friend you usually just talk to on social media out in the real world! Go on a walk, get a drink, or catch a flick. Just don’t forget to take a pic to put on social media after! *This is definitely Boo-Shaw Bakery’s favorite way to celebrate. While social media can bring people together, in person interaction can help keep people together! Give it a try!
There are even other ways to celebrate this wonderful holiday. Just keep it simple and do what you want. You might even learn a thing or two about new social media networks or make friendships even stronger by meeting in person. . . Who knows?!?
