Silver City may not be the biggest city in New Mexico, but it is the first to officially proclaim June 30 as Social Media Day.
Silver City Mayor James R. Marshall signed off on the proclamation at a Town Council meeting last week, a month after event organizer Abraham Villarreal submitted the request.
According to Villarreal, the city’s small size is exactly why it needs events like Social Media Day.
“When you’re a small community, finding ways to connect is important,” said Villarreal. “It’s an international event so we’re able to connect with other enthusiasts.”
