Happy Social Media Day

Today, June 30, is Social Media Day! So declared by the SM website Mashable who've founded this first annual celebration of social media, citing "more than 600+ meetups in 93 countries today with thousands of attendees."

Here in B.C.'s capital Victoria, it's official: Mayor Dean Fortin formally proclaimed June 30, 2010 Social Media Day in the City of Victoria, following upon the petition of local Social Media Day organizer Paul Holmes:

Paul notes that it is fitting that Victoria be the first city in the world to proclaim the day - Victoria was also the first city in Canada to form a Social Media Club chapter.

Hat tip to Vancouver's Knowlton Thomas of TechVibes for the heads-up.
