It’s Social Media Day! Imagine for one minute what our lives would be like without logging into Facebook, laughing at a Tweet, liking, pinning, posting, circling, re-tweeting, following, unfollowing and sharing.
Social Media day is celebrated every year on the 30th of June and was started by the ever popular website, Mashable. Social media has literally changed our lives both personally and in business. It’s hard to believe just how young these social channels are and how much they have affected our day to day lives. We can now easily connect with friends, artists, politicians and follow basically anything you are interested in. Companies are able to promote services and products, inform and engage with their customers about the latest trends, offers and innovations.
Let’s take a closer look at the most popular social media channels and how they can benefit you:
PlayHugeLottos on Facebook
Facebook was first launched on February 4th 2004 and created by students from Harvard University. The main founder Mark Zuckerberg invented a program that he called Facemash. Originally the network was designed for students of Harvard University, but a few months later joined by students of other major American universities. In September 2006, Facebook opened to the public and has since experienced rapid growth. According to a report from March this year, Facebook has 1.44 billion active users in 70 languages.
