Yesterday, people around the world commemorated Social Media Day, celebrating the tools that keep us connected in real-time. There were over 600 meet-ups globally, taking place across 93 countries with thousands of attendees. While some took the occasion for more casual get-togethes, others used the unofficial holiday to hold panels, raise money for charities, and more.
Insight: Whether you celebrated Social Media Day or not, there is no denying that Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and like platforms have forever changed the way people communicate. While approaches to marketing and by-organization use will become increasingly formalized, the impact on grassroots efforts (from promoting artists to catalyzing revolutions) signals the truest evolution in how we view the power of our individual keyboards.
