As the host city of the first-ever state and local government social media conference this past April, the City of Reno, Nevada is the latest government agency to issue a proclamation naming June 30, 2015, as “Social Media Day”.

Social Media Day is the sixth-annual global celebration of social media. Conceived by Mashable in 2010, the day has become an opportunity for communities to connect and collaborate digitally and offline with citizens.

The Reno community can join us in using #renolens hashtag on Social Media Day to share your unique images of the City, through your own lens. Another popular local hashtag is #BiggestLittleCity, where residents and visitors share all things Reno.

Our company, Reno-based Government Social Media LLC, was honored to found the 2015 Government Social Media Conference & Expo (GSMCON). We are looking forward to hosting it in Reno again in April 2016!
