The event takes place across social media on 6 February to promote the posting of inspiring and positive messages.
The viral #reclaimsocial campaign, which promotes positive content on social media, is back today for the third year running.
The campaign is run by tech for good company Lightful and urges organisations and people to share positive and inspiring stories on social media.
Charities are being called on to reveal how social media is being used for good and tips on how to be more mindful on social media.
Posts for the #reclaimsocial push can also be used to thank a specific organisation or person.

Another tip for posts is to nominate inspiring “heroes of positivity” as well as share the campaign’s hashtag.
To help promote the day Lightful has canvassed the views of charity sector leaders to find out who they admire on social media.
Social CEOs co-founder Matt Collins is impressed by the comedian Richard Herring for tackling trolls on International Women’s Day and raising money for charity.
Had no idea there was so much money in telling people when International Men’s Day is. Think I might go pro on this.
For the moment it’s still all for charity, but in a couple of months I might go freelance t.co/XV522ImcQR

“It’s inspiring how they’re using social media to change the conversation around mental health,” said Amar.
“Whether it’s through challenging taboos, practical advice on self-care or sharing online tools which help people understand their mental health better, their social media is inspiring and engaging.”
Fundraising freelancer Nikki Bell is inspired by @CharitySoWhite on Twitter, which posts regularly on diversity and anti-racism issues.

We're pleased to be running a workshop today at @savechildrenuk about #CharitySoWhite and starting a dialogue about institutional racism, power and privilege in the charity sector.— #CharitySoWhite (@CharitySoWhite) January 31, 2020
Thank you @Jon_Cornejo for leading this important conversation! https://t.co/bITe1hN3cN
This year’s campaign comes after Twitter suspended the account of right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins for violating their hateful conduct policy.
The decision was welcomed by the Center For Countering Digital Hate, which campaigns for the permanent removal of hateful accounts from social media.
Following our meeting with @Twitter this week, they have locked Katie Hopkins out of her account & accepted that she violated their hateful conduct policy.
Here are just some reasons we have called on them to permanently remove her from their platform [THREAD]
