Happy June 30th, also known as Social Media Day! In its short life, social media has redefined how people interact, communicate and share with family, friends and the world.
With the launch of Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003, social media became mainstream. Then 2004 brought the founding of the king of social media, Facebook. Twitter encouraged us to keep things short and sweet by posting our thoughts with fewer than 140 characters. Then came Instagram to help us express ourselves better through imagery and video. And speaking of video, YouTube is the social place for everything from how-to to pop culture to what not to do with your fireworks on the 4th of July.
Social media makes it possible to stay connected and informed about those important people in our lives. Reconnecting with classmates, past work associates and more is also a valuable part of social media. Celebrate today by posting something on your favorite social media platform, sharing your favorite meme or connecting with someone you’ve not spoken to in ages!
