Celebrate Social Media Day – June 30th

eLearning would not be the same without social media to connect people in the industry and allow us to share ideas, maximize the benefits of onsite events, disseminate content and in short, continue to learn.

This Saturday is a special day for social media, as it’s the 3rd Annual Social Media Day. This annual event was created by Mashable, a household name in social media news blogs,  in 2010. Mashable is hosting Meet-ups in 488 cites world-wide, including:

Social Media Day 2012

For other cities, Search Mashable Meetups near you. And there’s a designated hashtag #SMDay.

If you’re not attending an in-person meet-up, you might like to join social media/eLearning authority Jane Hart, as she hosts from London an informal virtual chat for eLearning folk on the Social Learning Centre.  You are welcome to share in Saturday’s chat how social media has impacted, changed or influenced your life.Jane Hart Social Learning Centre

In addition, if you would like to expand your PLN and do a little online networking, and discovery of people in the industry or your area, note this on your calendar for June 30th. Our eLearning colleague, Christopher Pappas, is planning a day-long connection hub on his large LinkedIn Group Instructional Design & E-Learning Professionals’ Group. Mark your calendar to check back there for a live thread of group members sharing their elearning Facebook pages/groups, Twitter accounts, blog URLs, and geographic locations, as well as a summary of their specialities in the field.

If you know of, or are planning anything online or else-wise, to celebrate the 3rd Social Media Day, please add it in the comments below. Backchannel notes welcome!

    Jane Hart’s online Social Learning Centre provided a meetup for members to weigh in on how social media has impacted their lives. The focus was “Celebrating the Connected Generation around the World” Thirty-seven people participated in the online meetup this past Saturday, June 30, with very positive accounts of how social media has expanded their horizons, with mention of their favorite tools and how their organizations have overcome the “fear factor” to allow engagement. Jane invites everyone to participate next year if you missed it this year.

    When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    Every thing is all about “trending.” We are in advance of the curve with what’s hot and what is not.
