On June 27, netizens will come together to celebrate this year’s Social Media Day in the Philippines. The annual global event spearheaded by Mashable is made possible here in the PH (hello, social media capital of the world!) by communities, partners, and volunteers, led by TweeUpMNL since 2012.
This year’s theme is for and about #ChangePH.
“It is an opportunity to look at new apps, new tools, new technologies that help bring about significant changes, big and small: Changes in how we Filipinos live, work, do business, travel, study, express, communicate, share, and form relationships.
It is a chance to discover new communities, to perform before new audiences, to witness rising new performers, and learn new skills that bring fresh starts: Changes in how we view things, people, and the world we live in.
It is a moment to gather less than a year before we vote for new leaders and for change in government: Changes that solve problems, empower citizens, promote fairness, and improve our country.” via TweetUpMNL
Hundreds are expected to attend the whole day event at the Museo Pambata open grounds, featuring a community expo at 10AM and a conference from 2PM – 8PM.
