Social Media has changed the world. The world as we know it now is much different from the world we lived in a few years ago. Social Media has made the world both a much bigger and much smaller space. Bigger in a sense that we are now not just citizens of our own country but the entire world as well. We witness worldwide events, and react to these events online. And somehow we influence the resulting change in the event(s) that we choose to take part in. Smaller also because this interconnectedness has made it relatively easier for anyone to reach out anywhere. We are one click away from each other.
Acknowledging the huge impact of Social Media in our everyday lives, trailblazing news site Mashable.com leads the online world in observing Social Media Day on Saturday, June 30, 2012. Now on its third year, the event celebrates the connected generation around the world. Manila Social Media Day will take place in Tea 101 Taiwan’s No. 1 Drink, in Tomas Morato Extension corner Scout Bayoran, Quezon City (near the Boy Scout Rotunda), from 7pm onwards. Film director and blogger Jose Javier Reyes will share his thoughts on social media during the event. Social media enthusiasts, bloggers and other digital media practitioners are invited to take part in the celebration.
