Happy Social Media Day? #SMDay
Social Media Day is here. I must tell you that I for one am a bit perplexed by this “holiday” and I’m sure you are probably surprised to hear me (Amanda Miller Littlejohn-who works at the intersection of public relations, journalism, marketing and social media) say this.
Perhaps I exist in my own little world where every day is social media day so the medium doesn’t need a holiday. But I sometimes forget that everyone doesn’t appreciate or use “The Twitters” as I do, so perhaps a holiday is in order.
Just a few questions:
Is the President observing this holiday? Are banks closing early? Will I still be able to get my latte?
I will be celebrating, or at least circulating. Here are a few events in Washington, DC that are on my radar:
