#TayoPH – Social Media Day 2016 on June 30 at Samsung Hall, SM Aura

@TweetupMNL mounts largest social media event in  the country, now on its 5th year.

@TweetupMNL, a volunteer community of active netizens who are united by their passion for social media, spearheads Social Media Day 2016, now on its 5th year, to be held at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, on June 30, 2016.

In light of the recent negativity that has flooded our newsfeeds these past months,  Social Media Day adapts the theme #TayoPH, which stands as a  virtual call to action and a celebration of how social media has become a potent tool that can bridge, give a voice and empower. It is a clarion call to stand together as a people. To rebuild, reconnect, reboot, refriend. It’s time to make the conversation positive and productive again. To celebrate social media’s triumphs and recall its potential — harnessing social media’s strengths in bringing people together, in crossing boundaries, and merging divides.

Indeed, Social Media has become more powerful than ever!

“It’s time to make the conversation positive and productive again,” Ros Juan, cofounder of @TweetupMNL shares. “We want to celebrate social media’s triumphs and recall its potential in making a meaningful impact in the lives of others.”
