On Saturday, September 29th, 2013 I crossed a major social media milestone. An elusive, shimmering specter of Facebook fandom I’ve wanted to achieve since I started my page: the 10,000 Likes point. And while I’m totally stoked on this achievement I admit I also find it a bit puzzling, as the 10,000 fan breakthrough came while I was riding an inexplicable tidal wave of new followers.
Typically I might get 7-10 new likes a day. Up until about a month ago, 100 new likes in a week was good organic growth for my page. But as soon as I crossed the 8,000 fan mark my page’s like growth skyrocketed like a thumbs-up strapped to a jetpack. Suddenly I was receiving 100-150 new followers every day. As I type this the rate has increased further to around 200 likes/day. I’m absolutely floored by this incredible growth, and I thank you all deeply for your support. But as I mentioned, I’m also a bit puzzled: where is everyone coming from?
To celebrate the 10,000 fan milestone I’m giving away $50 print gift certificates to anyone who wants one; all you have to do is tell me how you found my Facebook page. Let me know in the comments down below.
Thanks a million (er, a ten-thousand, I mean)!
