Social media has grown by leaps and bounds especially here in the Philippines where many Filipinos have accounts in different social networking sites and different social media platforms. Here in Cebu, bloggers have used social media to promote advocacies, educate and give information to their social networks.
It is therefore appropriate that social media has its own day in the calendar when people celebrate its presence and its various roles.
That day initiated by Mashable is June 30.
In Cebu, its first Social Media Day celebration will be spearheaded by the Cebu Bloggers Society Incorporated (CBSi) through an event that will also serve as a general assembly for CBSi members in Mactan Isla Resort.
“Social Media Day Cebu will be a day of fun and blogging literacy, of acquaintances and sharing stories about blogging and social media,” exclaimed Cebu Bloggers Society President Ruben Licera Jr.
It is a day where bloggers, social media practitioners, friends, acquaintances who benefited from social media meet to learn, interact, form partnerships and connect while having fun.
The event which is open to both members and nonmembers of Cebu Bloggers Society will be highlighted by a series of talks as indicated in this program. Topics include "Freelancing with Elance", "Ethics online and in the field", "Writing killer content for your blog" and "Increasing your online influence through social media networks."
