It was born as a way to recognize social media’s impact on global communication, and to bring the world together to celebrate it.
The first major platforms from social media’s start to popularity were Friendster in 2002 and MySpace in 2003. Soon after, Facebook launched in 2004, which eventually became one of the largest social media platforms in existence that now has over one billion people using it. Now, common platforms have become Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Whatsapp, TikTok, and many others, showing how these platforms have evolved from written messages, to pictures, and eventually videos that can be shared instantly and seen by millions. #SMDay
