Two years ago, we hosted the first Mashable Social Media Day in the UAE on 30th June 2010. It was an opportunity to share and celebrate all things social media. In Dubai, our celebrations began with Social Media Week with local businesses offering special promotions as “Social Media Offers” at their venues and web locations. There were select community focused presentations on #UAESMDay.
30th June, Social Media Day (#UAESMDay on Twitter), will be once again strictly for the community. An opportunity to highlight your business for free
Community bloggers, podcasters and online broadcasters will be given the privelege of broadcasting from the event. Please send your links to us on our Facebook Page or to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can include your details on this site or on any web sites that help to promote UAE Social Media Day.
Its a community event. Help us to
- Raise awareness for #UAESMDay on Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere. Encourage RSVPs on our Facebook Event Page. Follow @smdayuae, and #UAEsmday for updates on Twitter. To enable the global community to keep track of what we’re doing here, please add #SMDay too
- Encourage participation: We need the support of local businesses.
- Recruit: Like-minded people like you to raise awareness just by talking about it on Twitter or Facebook or a social media of your choice.
- Emotional Message: This is not another social media event nor is it a commercial PR event where sponsorship money will be exchanged. It’s an event by the community, for the community. It is an evening of raising awareness for SME creativity, Uniting People, Social Media Marketing, and Volunteering for Social Change.
We want to thank the community for keeping our Facebook event page active and updated. We also thank a few of them that have volunteered to Tweet and blog for us.
By the community. For the community.
