I’m am disappointed to say that Fort St John is not celebrating Social Media Day. It was something I really wanted to head up and get something going, but unfortunately on this day, June 30, 2011, I am actually driving back from Yellowknife to Fort St John.
Social Media Day is a day when over 1300 communities across the world get together with themselves offline. The people within these communities get to meet each other, they connect, they talk, they enjoy each others time. According to Mashable Social Media Day is a day to celebrate Media becoming Social.
Just because we are missing Social Media Day doesn’t mean we can’t ramp up our Social Community in Fort St John. I would like to see us become even more of an online community than we already are. Since I’m sure most of the people who will read this are already participating on Twitter and Facebook, I want you, over the next week, to get someone you know on Twitter. Show them how it works and show them why it can actually beneficial to them.
By next year I want Fort St John to celebrate Social Media Day like we should!
