SOCIAL MEDIA DAY: OUR TOP PICKS & MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS

Social media has become so prevalent that we almost forget how to function without it. Our Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat accounts have practically transformed into our digital companions. For communications professionals, whose day-to-day involves regular and meticulous engagement on social media, personal brands often take a backseat.  Today however, in honor Mashable’s Social Media Day, we would like to introduce and truly celebrate the masters of social media that make up our team.

These are the faces of the Skai Blue Media team, who are not afraid to get down to business via social media, but still enjoy posting about their favorite food, events and people at their own leisure.
