Message from Mashable:
We’re thrilled to celebrate Mashable’s third annual Social Media Day! We launched the event in 2010 as a way to recognize the digital revolution happening right before our eyes. We invite you to join fellow social media enthusiasts by hosting or attending a Social Media Day Meetup in your area.
Visit our Social Media Day website for resources and more information: http://mashable.com/smday We look forward to celebrating with you!
Message from Local Organizers in Colombo
Back in 2010, we organized a small meet-up to coincide with Refresh Colombo to celebrate the day (then “Social Good Day”). Due to busy schedules, we couldn’t do the 2011 version of Social Media day in Colombo.
This year we’ve got good news! We’ve managed to get several “Social Media Stars” in Sri Lanka together to celebrate the Social Media day in a much bigger way!
The date is 30th June 2012! Don’t add anything else to your schedules from 4.00PM to 7.00PM on this day. Come to Excel World to mash-up with many more Social Media fanatics like you.
What’s in the lineup?
1. Networking Session – Mash-up with your social buddies
2. Social Media for Social Good – Session by Sarvodaya Fusion
3. Meet JehanR! – A Google Hangout with JehanR the Youtube star.
We’ve got many surprises! Stay tuned to get more updates soon…
And who is backing us up to make this event a possibility? Etisalat Sri Lanka has come forward to be the exclusive event partner for the Colombo event.

Let’s not forget the team behind 2010 event who initiated this. It was @YasirNasir, @RohanVim (No longer in the social media grid!) and myself @Amisampath. Support given to us by @Nazly and Milad of @RefreshColombo team and the resource person of the event @wanninayaka was immensely remarkable! Not to forget the refreshments by @CocoVeranda 🙂
