Yessss we did it, we hit 3,000 people on our Facebook Fanpage!
Ok, some of you may be thinking, wellll 3,000 really isn’t that great in comparison to some of the other pages out there like, Starbucks with 23 million likes, or Boo the dog with a million likes… But for a fanpage about bags? 3,000 is pretty freaking awesome.
For those of you who haven’t really come across it yet, the Uncover Ostomy Facebook Fanpage was created alongside this website to continue to spread awareness through social media. I use it as a flag for when I post new blogs or when we have new pictures to share. It was paired with my personal twitter account (@JessGrossman), my personal YouTube account, and the Uncover Ostomy YouTube account. Though it was created simply to spread the word through another online medium, it has grown into so much more.
Every time I check the page, I see another post from an ostomate either asking an ostomy related question, asking simple advice, posting pictures of their proud stoma friend, or just posting supportive comments to others. It has really grown into an amazing online community; something I never expected.
If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for??
I want to say thank you to everyone who has joined and not only invited their friends (ostomates or not), but to those who have really come together in the community.
It’s not over though! 4,000 likes is only a few clicks away- keep spreading the word :]
