Mashable launched Social Media Day in 2010 as a way to recognize the digital revolution happening around the world. This is a global celebration of the technological advancements that have given rise to the connected generation.
Social Media Day is a worldwide event that cuts across generational, racial and religious divide, networking and discovering unity in diversity. Social Media Day 2012 – Accra, Ghana provides an offline example of social media where bloggers and other members of the social media community can converge to buildÂ networks or most importantly, associates.
We have seen the power of social media platformsÂ like Facebook and Twitter in topplingÂ oppressiveÂ regimes and sparking change in North Africa and other parts of the Middle-East.

Unfortunately, I won’t be attending this awesome event as I’ll be traveling to Berlin, Germany attending to personal issues and more. My advice to those attending:
