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.
