Happy Social Media Day 2017

Did you know that earlier this week Facebook hit 2 billion users?! According to Buzzfeed, "That's a little more than the population of China, the US, Mexico, and Japan combined." The 'book reached this milestone just in time for Social Media Day! If you aren't sure how to celebrate our favorite day of the year, don't worry, below we have five ways you can celebrate as a small business! 

1. Join Mashable in celebrating by using the hashtag #SMDay and following @MashSMDay on Twitter. Mashable launched Social Media Day eight years ago as a way for the global community to celebrate and recognize the impact social media has had and continues to have.

The event is full of great speakers and is promising social media shenanigans to follow. Use hashtag #SMDayDEN to show your support. 

3. Reach out to your favorite Social Media Influencer. We all have a favorite Instagram/Twitter/Snapchat account. DM/tweet/snap them and let them know their account has inspired you in one way or another. Even if they don't get back to you, you did what social media is meant to do — connect people to each other! 

4. Open a new account. Don't have a Pinterest? Start one! Don't have a Snapchat? Make one! Social media is all about connecting and gaining new ideas and perspectives, and what better way to do that than start a new account? And who knows, it might turn out to be your favorite platform!
