If you're looking for something to do today then maybe you should put the internet to good use today because it's Social Media Day!  Social media is EVERYWHERE so you're going to have a ton of options!  Let's get right into celebrating Social Media Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, when you sit down at your computer for a good amount of time on the internet, what do you usually do? Do you check Facebook to see what your friends are up to? Do you check your subscriptions on YouTube to see if there are any new videos up to help you pass the time? Do you check out random photos on Reddit, Tumblr, Flickr or Deviantart? Well, then you're using social media pretty much every day! So, when something is used this often by so many people, then it deserves to be celebrated for the ways it's changed how we run our lives.  If you don't feel like social media has changed your life that much then take a look at how you interact with people now through social media. You can pretty much comment on anything anyone posts to instantly let them know what you think about it. You can like it or dislike it, share it, favorite it and so on. Plus you can tag pictures to link all your friends to a specific event.

You can easily stay up to date on what all your friends are doing and you can make new friends in the process. No one is really that shy online and people love "meeting" new interneticals. So you can not only connect with your friends but you can also connect to society as a whole. Distance isn't as much of a factor when it comes to keeping in contact, knowing what each other is doing and possibly making plans to meet in person.  Gasp, we can meet in the real world?!

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, you could easily just be sure to use your social media outlets today but you do that every day, right? So why don't you vow to post a tweet every hour you're awake today or post a short video every hour. Really let people connect with you from all over for every hour of the day. You could even post a picture every hour at a number of different social media sites.  Or you could spruce up your social media profiles today. If you're good at coding or can find a good theme then you can really draw some attention to your profile. So start brainstorming some ideas on how to make your Twitter, Tumblr or even your MySpace profile a bit more awesome today. Then "tag" someone and tell them to try to make their profile look better than yours and have them tag someone else. You'd be surprised how long this dorky little chains keep going.  Or you can always have a social media meet up since that's what the original idea for this holiday is all about. Mashable actually set this holiday up in 2010 and it seems to be a pretty big hit. All someone has to do is set up a little meet up in their city and just spread the word and maybe you'll end up meeting all those people you normally type at. Practice your best emoticon faces and get ready for your big day!  Don't make me "dislike" what you end up doing today!
