Social Media Day 2019 was a huge success. More than the above statistics, it was the enthusiasm on the face of the Digital Marketers that attended these events; that made it a triumph. It all started with a general doubt – how to make this year’s Social Media Day special? So, posted a poll on Indian Digital Club’s group and three weeks later – the doubt was a reality. Meetups all over India with Digital people doing one thing they hate to do the most in life – come offline and meet people. (Just kidding!)
A little look into the history of how this all started –
Mashable launched Social Media Day in 2010 as a way to recognize and celebrate social media’s impact on global communication. Indian Digital Club wanted to spread more awareness about the importance of social media. So, we asked our members across India to give India v/s England match a little break and go celebrate our day in pride in their own cities.
