The social media revolution is here.

On June 30, 2010, Mashable launched Social Media Day as a way to recognize and celebrate social media’s impact on global communication. Today, social media is the heart of global communication; and since its inception, Mashable’s been using social media to connect between cultures, movements and super-fandom. 

 While every day is essentially Social Media Day, June 30th, 2017 marks the eighth-annual official global celebration and the first official Social Media Day event in Jacksonville, Florida, a full-day conference where industry thought leaders will gather and share insights.
