Social Media Day 2012!

Last week on June 30th was Social Media Day! People all over the world tweeted under the hashtag #smday, posted on Facebook, and pinned on Pintrest in honor of Social Media!

It is hard for me to imagine what the world would have been like without websites like Facebook and Twitter. What would college have been like without posting statuses or browsing through pictures? How would I have stayed up to date on my favorite athletes and breaking news? How would I have spent my free time without websites like #whatshouldwecallme? I even based my entire Senior Project thesis on Social Media use in the classroom.

What is apparent is that Social Media has instantly placed the world at our fingertips at lightning speed. We build and nurture our daily interactions and relationships through these infamous online platforms. It is “the one thing that unites us and keeps us in constant contact.” (Mashable.com)

Take a look at the brief excerpt below from Mashable.com about this new up and coming holiday.
