Two More Days to Go: Manila Social Media Day on June 30

Inset: General call for Manila Social Media Day bloggers’ meet-up for northern Metro Manila.

Few weeks ago, I received an invitation from fellow blogger King del Rosario whom I met in the Presidential Campaign for Gilbert Teodoro last 2010. He mentioned Manila Social Media Day and I was thrilled! The event was inspired by a start-up invite by Mashable that wishes to recognize to the role of social media in connecting the world. I was thrilled since the weeks after, this event created a buzz even in the traditional media like the big three television stations, radio and print.

Yes, Social Media Day is a worldwide event that cuts across generational, racial and religious divide, networking and discovering unity in diversity. Manila Social Media Day provides an offline example of social media where bloggers and other members of the social media community can converge to build networks or most importantly, camaraderie. We have seen the power of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter in toppling oppressive regimes and sparking change.

Inset: Manila Social Media Day call-up with some Major Sponsors.

Since I live in Quezon City, I was thrilled that they are going to have Manila Social Media Day right in my niche of the City of the Stars. Tea 101: Taiwan’s No. 1 Drink is going to be the venue of the big night, just in Scout Bayoran cor. Tomas Morato Extension, Quezon City. Direk Joey Reyes, an acclaimed director, producer and blogger will grace the night with his insights about the role of social media. The Philippines has been said to be the social media capital of the world.

Inset: Social Media Day meet-up by Tweetup Manila in Ayala Center, Makati City.

For those who live far South, no worries since a group called Tweetup Manila organized Social Media Day in Tower One, Exchange Plaza, Ayala Triangle, Makati City. Davao Bloggers also organized Davao Social Media Day 2012 in the city as well but my hope is that my very own Negros Bloggers will have one soon in Bacolod City though smaller. Get the hype and use the hashtags #SMDay and #ManilaSMDay. Mark June 30 in your calendars and let’s meet at Manila Social Media Day!
