Social Media day theme is “Social Media Capital”, a title that is due to the over 35 million Filipino netizens who made it possible to capture that new title for the country
The event organized by TweetUp Manila in Ayala Triangle also served as the the launching date for Project 140, which seeks to identify and support 140 prospective scholars from the country’s poorest provinces, through the cooperation and sponsorship of social media users, big and small.
Supporting the Makati event were Ayala Land, Inc., Make It Makati, TV5, Beyond the Box, Crumpler, NetBooster Asia, eLearning Edge, Unilab, EchoStore, Michelis, Axe, Garnier, Boracay, Adobo Magazine and KLM, among others.
Similar events are also set to be held in Quezon City, Iligan City, Cagayan de Oro City and Davao City.
The global Social Media Day is spearheaded by US-based technology website Mashable.
Thank you to all the 440 plus social media users who went to the Makati #smday. Only 300 were expected to attend. Kudos to @tonyocruz and @juanxi and the volunteers who made this event possible.
Here are some of the photos of the event and the video of the live TV Coverage from ABS CBN:
