Social Media Day on June 30 (Another event)

Since I'll be dropping by to Makati tomorrow, why not go to the Third Social Media Day to be held at the Tower One & Exchange Fountain Area, Ayala Triangle Garden. And since the other Social Media Day I'll be attending will be later that evening, I guess going to two won't hurt right? ^_^

Tomorrow, the Philippines joins the world in celebrating Social Media Day this weekend with a gathering of Twitterati, bloggers and other internet users in Makati City and elsewhere in the country. 

The sheer increase in numbers made us the world's social media mecca since 2010 as more than 27 million Filipinos (me included) regularly log-on to Facebook while a couple of million have made Twitter a popular site for news, trends and information. I just recently signed-up at Twitter out of curiosity and I never looked back ever since. By 2008, we have led the way in terms of uploading photos and videos and share them to friends here and abroad.

The event is being organized by the community of netizens behind TweetUp Manila and the first Twestival Manila, and whose work and passions have brought them together both online and offline.

Filipino Twitterati, bloggers, advocates, practitioners from media, business, government are expected to grace that day's celebration of creativity, community and conversation that has pushed individuals, companies and organizations, and the nation many steps forward and ahead of the rest of the world.

There is much reason to celebrate social media in the Philippines: its creation of new careers and new opportunities, the awesome efforts to use new tools for helping during and after disasters such as Ondoy and Sendong, the new space for media, politics and expression, citizen journalism and cutting-edge, content-rich multimedia practice, and industry going digital to reach and affect more people whether thru marketing, PR or advertising.

Supporting the Makati event are Ayala Land, Inc., Make It Makati, TV5, Beyond the Box, Crumpler, NetBooster Asia, eLearning Edge, Unilab, EchoStore, Michelis, Axe, Garnier, Boracay, Adobo Magazine and KLM, among others.

If you want to join tomorrow's event, you may sign-up here.

See you tomorrow. ^_^
