Social Media Day is a worldwide celebration that takes place on 30th June each year. Mashable launched the concept of #SMDAY in 2010.
Social Media has changed our lives both in the way how we do business and also in the way we socialize. Rising above the traditional B2B and B2C businesses, today is the time to go H2H a.k.a. Human to Human. So, it is a day for global celebration of the technological advancements that enable everyone of us to connect with real-time information, communicate from miles apart and have our voices be heard. SMDAY is a way of bringing our Social Media friends together at one place for a big party.
Social Media Day is a platform that shares the finest concepts, revolutions and understandings as to how social media and technology are transmuting business, humanity and principles around the world. We exist in times of unparalleled human connectivity and in midst of all that the world is transforming and advancing at a mind-boggling speed. So to keep up with that, knowledge sharing is critical. Thus comes the concept of Social Media Day.
It is time for Pune City to celebrate once again as Social Media Day is ready with its second edition! Event is organized & sponsored by SocialChamps Media Pvt Ltd, a Pune based Social Media Agency. This year the event promises to be interesting and insightful.
