About 26 hours ago, the What The Feis Facebook page had about 86 Likes. We have been online for a little over 2 years, and I let natural word of mouth create our ‘fan base’.
Well, last night, Facebook What The Feis was listed on Crazy Irish Broads page (18 and over suggested please) and we blossomed to 106 Likes. I met my 100 Like goal, life was good.
At approximately 1415 (that’s 2:15PM for you civilians) my Like count started to climb, I mean, like refresh the page and there were 5 – 10 more likes kind of climb, and I found out that Pride of the Irish decided to jump onboard the WTF train. When you have nearly 82,000 Likes and you say ‘go like a page’, sh… um, stuff happens.
Since that time, about 7 hours, nearly 300 people(just 2 short at the 6 hour and 50 minute mark) have liked WTF on Facebook, and while I am keeping up with the likes and the comments, I am trying to figure the best way to answer and make the best of it all for FB and the WTF website. We have one new follow whose Mum was an Undefeated All-Ireland Champ in 1951… that is not something you just ‘like’ in passing, that is cool history that needs to be shared somehow.
So, thanks for the follows and if you think WTF is worthy, please share it. In the meantime, I am going to figure out the best way to share my new found followhood :)
Good for you! This is terrific idea, as I’ve said previously, and something we in the Irish Dance community have needed for awhile. :-)
In the fall, we pass out a “handbook” for the new parents with a list of resources on-line. I’ve added your site to our list, so you may get a few more “likes”, come September.
Now with all these new Likes, I feel like I need to up my game :)
