History of #ReclaimSocial
#ReclaimSocial started as a campaign two years ago. The idea was empowered by Lightful, a UK tech-for-good company. In a year that social media scandals and negative stories were becoming more relevant, there was also a growing need for a focus on the positive side of social networks. People are craving for inspiring stories on their social media feeds and that’s how the campaign ended up trending on the day.
A year after, on February 6, 2019, the campaign grew even stronger. In the second running year, it reached 40 million people with nonprofits and individuals all over the world joining forces to share their own positive stories. The message was clear that we can all reclaim social media for good, one post at a time. Charities quickly jumped to this movement to highlight their impact and their amazing work. It was obvious that this conversation needs to continue beyond this annual campaign. That’s how the #ReclaimSocial podcast came to life. From big charities to individual acts of kindness, the goal is to make social media for all of us more inspiring and inspire us to be positive every day.
