Fireworks Night: Enjoy it again and again through social media

It’s that time of year again when we pack two nights of fun and festivity into one week – Halloween and Fireworks Night! These familiar friends are much welcome occurrences in the calendar, lifting our spirits as the temperature quickly cools and the nights draw in early.

My Facebook and Twitter feeds have been taken over by pictures of ghastly ghouls, wicked witches and groups of friends wrapped up warm in hats, gloves and scarves braving the cold to watch fireworks displays. I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed it! It’s much more pleasant to hear about people having a great time, than the usual Winter grumblings about delayed trains and heavy rainfall.

Social media means that these sorts of events carry further – we no longer just enjoy our local fireworks display, we get to be a part of everyone else’s experiences. And we also get to enjoy those experiences for longer, thanks to social media. It’s likely that most of us will be commenting and liking our friends’ fireworks snaps for the next week or so…

Having enjoyed Battersea Fireworks Display on Saturday night, I was inspired to dip into Radian6 to take a look at some of the conversations that have played out in social media over the last couple of days. Let’s hope the pretty pictures of sparklers, rockets and Catherine wheels help to lift your spirits on this Monday morning!

This has to be one of the happiest conversations clouds that I’ve seen; it’s absolutely jam packed full of positive words including great, happy, enjoy, good and love. Social media spreading the love.
