Happy #SMDay from Newport Aquarium!

NAQ entranceNEWPORT, Ky. — On this #SMDay (Social Media Day), Newport Aquarium would like to take the time to say ‘Thank You’ to our more than 100,000 fans across all of our multiple social media networks.

Launched in 2010, Social Media Day was created by Mashable to celebrate social media’s impact on communication worldwide. Social media has grown immensely over the years and projects to become an even bigger part of people’s everyday lives moving forward.

City of Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley even proclaimed June 30, 2015, as Social Media Day in Cincinnati (or #SMdayCincy)!

At Newport Aquarium, we like to use social media to for a number of different reasons – to educate, to entertain, to inform and, most importantly, to connect with our fans.

We want to make our fans laugh, teach them about interesting animal facts, raise awareness about conservation efforts and provide useful information regarding Newport Aquarium.

We love seeing photos, videos and posts from our guests, as well as feedback and suggestions to help us improve your social media experience.

For a quick reference, here is a directory of all of our social media networks:
