Today, June 30th, Victoria officially declares #smday in #yyj (or for those who don’t read in hashtags and 140 character text) Social Media Day in Victoria! Now typically, this type of move would take place in larger cities like Toronto, Vancouver, New York etc. Well forget that! In Fact, Victoria has became the first city in the world to officially declare June 30th Social Media Day!
We tip our hats to one Paul Holmes (@tpholmes) for pushing this petition through council and getting Victoria’s mayor Dean Fortin to sign off on it! This proclamation is being picked up on an international scale, from CBC to CNN! To celebrate such a forward thinking momentous occasion, Victoria’s social media enthusiasts will be meeting at The Bengal Lounge in the Empress Hotel at 7:00PM! See you there.
