Digital publisher, Mashable, launched Social Media Day on June 30, 2010, as a way to recognise social media’s impact on global communication. It’s become a tradition for brands and influencers to celebrate the day since then. Alcatel suggests some ways to mark the day, straight from the social apps on your Android device.
- Freshen up your profiles
Why not start out #SMDay with a fresh new look on the social platforms you use? #SMDay could be a good day to update your profile and background pics and bio or personal information on your social media accounts.
- Find some new friends or follows
Social media is all about connecting and sharing. On #SMDay, you could seek out some new feeds or accounts to follow and connect with some new friends.
- Share your social media stories with the hashtag #SMDay
Social media has changed life for many of us, enabling us to make deep and meaningful new connections, reconnect with friends and family, stay connected with those far away from us, especially during COVID, and find new interests and passions. You could write a short post to celebrate some ways social media has enriched your life and share it with the #SMDay hashtag.
- Thank your friends and followers
As with the other people in our lives, we can sometimes forget to tell our social media contacts how much we appreciate them. #SMDay is an opportunity to thank them for adding value to our lives.
- Share some tips and tricks
If you’re a social media pro, you could share some of your favourite social media hacks with others who don’t know the platforms as well as you do. On Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other apps, there are so many rich features that the average user doesn’t know about.
- Test a new platform
If you’ve been meaning to try out TikTok, Pinterest or Instagram for the first time, well, here’s your chance.
- Share a selfie
What is social media without selfies? Mark the day with an unfiltered selfie showing where you are and what you’re doing, and encourage your followers and friends to do the same.
