  • Mashable community members gathered on June 30 to celebrate the fifth annual Social Media Day. At guest panels and happy hours the world over, we came together to connect and discuss the huge role social media plays in our daily lives.
    Now in its fifth year, the celebration saw gatherings with as many as 5,000 attendees each. Some of the biggest celebrations took place in Cairo, Kochi in India and Panama City. In the United States, some of the biggest celebrations took place in Miami, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada and Mashable's own celebration in Brooklyn.

    Community organizers planned Social Media Day celebrations for the first time ever in locations such as Tel Aviv, Israel, Guatemala City, Guatemala and Curaçao. We hope to see that list expand even more next year. If you're interested in organizing a celebration, it's never too early to start planning how to make Social Media Day official in your city.
    The day saw more than 30,000 tweets sent out with the #SMDay hashtag, according to Topsy. The #smdaykochi hashtag trended in India on Twitter. Another highlight of the day was when members of the community participated in #1Connection, a Twitter movement that matched people around the world together and allowed them to form a new connection — much like a digital version of pen pals.
