Today (June 30th) is Social Media Day — started by Mashable to celebrate “the one thing that unites us and keeps us in constant contact: social media. Whether you’re an obsessed Instagram photographer, an endless Pinterest pinner or a ten-times-an-hour tweeter, Social Media Day is a time to recognize the digital revolution that has changed how we live.”
People from all over the globe are gathering together to acknowledge that our world is very different today, thanks to social media — whether you have re-connected with a high school friend because of Facebook, found a job thanks to Twitter or built a business from your digital connections.
In Des Moines — there’s a tweet up tonight (details here) and for those of us who are traveling — we had the opportunity to create a short video to share our thoughts and talk about how social media has changed our world.
I’m in California, celebrating my daughter’s birthday (can you say Disneyland?) but used my very limited imovie talents to create a little something. This is proof positive that you don’t have to be good at video to use video.
To all of you who have commented on this blog, subscribed, followed me on Twitter, met me at an event, attended Blogger Social or been an author in one or more of our Age of Conversation books — thank you.
You have enriched my life and I am grateful.
Here’s how I captured that in my talking PPT!
