Thank you so much to everyone who took part in #ReclaimSocial yesterday – we even trended! But it’s not over yet. This is a movement, not a campaign so we need you to keep the hashtag alive!
How has the message spread?
So far, #ReclaimSocial has had 16M social impressions from 1,500 posts and over 1,000 people and organisations have taken part.
Here are just a selection of some of the amazing #ReclaimSocial posts by charities and individuals.
When blind veteran Laura was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa she’d have been excused for never imagining she’d one day compete in national shooting competitions. Yet in just two years, she’s won Division 9 & 6 of the nationwide vision-impaired Postal League! 💪 #reclaimsocial pic.twitter.com/wXnY9QnGZh

Let’s share the hidden network of kindness and progress that never stops and never rests. Let’s make social media the place to celebrate the stories of how people are making the world better! #ReclaimSocial

Without social media, #GivingTuesday would not have become a huge success around the world. Our movement relies on social media so that people can spread the word and ultimately #DoGoodStuff for others.#ReclaimSocial @lightful @GivingTues https://t.co/UU8JlHXFlA

It’s time to #ReclaimSocial for good and make social media a more positive place to be. Social media is a positive and vital tool for a charity like us and helps us make an even bigger difference to peoples’ lives.

For me this is about putting the spotlight on the good things we achieve via social media – things which are often overshadowed by the negatives and shouty stuff #ReclaimSocial
