Burlington Celebrates Social Media Day

Mashable declared June 30 Social Media Day, and Burlington's Tweeters, Facebookers, and Foursquare checkers-in aren't letting it pass without a celebration. Check out the Burlington Social Media Day Facebook page for a list of events that are happening today. There are Tweetups happening all day long, and a treasure hunt at local businesses.

The event organizers are also asking social media users to pick their Social Media King, Queen, Businesses, and Organizations. Seven Days's own political columnist Shay Totten is nominated for Social Media King. Click here to vote — ballots will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. today. The crowns will be bestowed upon the royals tonight at 6:00 p.m. during a ceremony at Bluebird Tavern.
