There are a lot of pointless celebrations out there in September alone there is “Calender Adjustment Day” as well as “Emma M Nutt Day” not to mention “Lace Making Day” and countless others. Well there is a day that came around and I wouldn’t exactly give it Christmas status but its not bad, it is called “Social Media Day” and it has been celebrated since 2010 courtesy of Mashable.

While doing research on social media day I’m actually kind of disappointed I missed it. The whole concept is really awesome and according to Mashable, who produces the event, social media day is all about, “Social Media Day” is an annual global event on June 30 that recognizes the digital revolution happening right before our eyes. Whether we’re reporting about new online networks on Mashable or listening to inspiring stories from our readers, we’ve seen how this increasingly connected world is quickly changing lives across the globe. We invite you to join fellow social media enthusiasts by hosting or attending a Social Media Day Meetup in your area.”

They even held a event in Detroit on June 30, the event was held at the Soundboard Theater inside the Motor City Casino hotel.  The event is focused on individuals who are on the cusp of the social media revolution who wish to meet up and discuss how social media is being used in business ventures and personally. Discussions are happening in 403 cities simultaneously which are all interconnected via Facebook and Twitter using a hashtag.

This is something really amazing and monumental for the use of social media as a new marketing tool. I absolutely intend on attending Social Media Day 2013 to see what new and exciting social media trends are in front of us.
