A great call by the Mashable team, with their proclamation of June 30th as “Social Media Day”! It’s time somebody picked one day to celebrate a media which has done so much to connect people. All over the globe people will be organizing meetups to celebrate Social Media Day. In fact, right now we are well over eleven thousand attendees at events from Toronto to Tbilisi with 555 meetups happening today in 93 countries.

Mashable has left it up to the locals to decide how they want to celebrate Social Media Day — anything from a casual GT on the patio to informal conferences and panels. I’m just loving the fact that we have people coming together from all over to celebrate in this way and it’s all promoted via social, email and the web. How big will this be? It’s going to be another interesting example of social network power. At least here, it’s damn good timing with perfect patio weather and the chaos of the G20 subsiding.
In Toronto the big even is @ Madison Avenue Pub & Restaurant, 14 Madison Ave. Toronto @ 8 PM. It should be a good one with Netfirms sponsoring the bash. The organizers do plan to have a couple of speakers, but my gut instinct is that this is going to turn in to one kick butt patio party…even if the place doesn’t have a patio. You can catch all the Toronto action via a live stream as well.
The eMail Guide team plans to be there and we hope you’ll join us too! If you can’t join us here in TO, find the local meetup in your area and head on down! Head to a beach, have a Pina Colada @ Trader Vic’s — whatever makes you feel social.
If you are heading down, drop a comment and let us know!
