5 years ago, Mashable launched World Social Media Day to recognize digital revolution and create social media awareness. Blogging is a big part of the digital revolution and it is something we as an Association for Kenyan Bloggers prides ourselves in being a part of. This year we have something special for you; chance to win a Nokia XL
If you look around you today, people are discussing blogs or something they read on social media. Our lives revolve around it. We live in a world where it is easier to tweet your bank than call their customer service. A world where a trending topic on Twitter or blogs makes news.
We are encouraged by the great impact social media has had in our lives. However, we cannot forget how we all survived before we all became digital beings. We remember certain moments with nolstagia; sending love letters through the post, moments where you would have to sit with your family in the living room to catch up not read their posts online. Waiting at Kencom for a rendezvous not knowing if they the date would be on time or late and now having a way of asking them where they were.
As we celebrate Social media day this year, BAKE would like to challenge you. We shall be holding a competition dubbed “Tumetoka Mbali” in the run up to Social Media Day on 30th June.
All you have to do is share stories from back in the day, how you lived your life before mobile phones and the internet under the hashtag #SMDayKe. You can include photos, videos and memes. Be as creative as possible.
The competition will be based on judging how creative you can get using the various social media platforms at your disposal.
The competition runs from 13th June and will end on 26th June.
The winner of the competition will receive a Nokia XL courtesy of Microsoft Devices (Formerly Nokia).
A Social Media Day event will be held at the Nailab on 30th June where the winner will receive their prize. The event will also mark the release of social media guidelines.
