WHEREAS, while every day is essentially Social Media Day, June 30th is a day set aside for us to recognize the impact these modern digital tools have made on our lives; and

WHEREAS, Social Media Day was launched in 2010 to celebrate and highlight the ways in which social media and digital innovation have come to define this generation, developing from a grassroots initiative to a global observance that is recognized many thousands of people; and

WHEREAS, Nevada's state agencies as well as cities and communities across the state now utilize social media platforms to engage in two-way conversations with constituents, distribute critical information and news, foster civic pride, and connect with members of the community; and

WHEREAS, as technology and social media platforms continue to expand, greater opportunities to promote civic engagement and cultivate informed communities will also be available; and

WHEREAS, utilizing social media platforms supports the goal of bringing together businesses, innovators, influencers, and community stakeholders, enabling them to connect their online networks in a face-to-face setting, enhancing partnerships and collaborative efforts; and

WHEREAS, social media has empowered consumers to locate, engage and support local businesses by aligning technology with community-centered goals and objectives; and

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BRIAN SANDOVAL, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim  June 30, 2016
