Mashable’s #1Connection #Fail or #Win
Happy Social Media Day!
At AddBloom, we’re super excited about today. If we’re not celebrating today, then who is? (PS. feel free to join us at Chili’s for a social media fiesta!).
Social Media Day #SMDay, coined, created and promoted by the one and only Mashable – has been a thing for the past 5 years. Unlike National Cupcake Frosting Day, this is legit. Social media enthusiasts around the World meet up and celebrate the digital revolution.
This year, they launched a hashtag campaign. #1connection.
On Social Media Day, follow one user who tweets the hashtag #1connection. Join us and expand your network by one to be part of a global movement.
All you have to do is tweet #1connection and hope that, as the hashtag suggests, you gain a new connection. It’s basically the professional, not-so-sleazy version of Instagram’s #followforfollow or #likesforlikes.
For those who frequently read Mashable, #1connection might be a good opportunity to connect to fellow readers. But at a current total of 97 tweets, #1connection might not trend as much as it could have. I would love to meet fellow readers around the globe, would they like to meet me?
The Mashable readership is impressive (and includes our entire office). If we all take one #1connection, we could make some worthwhile online acquaintances that could blossom into much, much more.
On our clock – there’s approximately 8 hours until SMDay is over. That’s plenty of time in the digital world … Will #1connection make it to the Trends sidebar on Twitter?
Let’s find out.
