Woodinville Patch is on a mission: Get more than 1,000 "Likes" on our Facebook page by the end of June to rival our Patch sites in the East who have been crowing in Patchland about how many "Likes" they have.
If it were just the Easterners, well, sheesh, that noise we could block out. But while sipping coffee with our colleagues at Kirkland Patch and Redmond Patch, a gauntlet was dropped, to see which of us could reach that 1,000 mark first.
It must be Woodinville.
Let’s show those upstarts in the east and on our border that Woodinville is far more plugged-in and social media savvy than they are.
Bragging rights not enough of an incentive to "Like" Woodinville Patch on Facebook? Here are five reasons.
1) Real-time Updates About News
Remember when because of a bear sighting? That was first reported on our Facebook page. We regularly update the page with news and notes from the community that don't always make it to the Patch website. Stay in the know!
2) You Help Create the Conversation
Big or small stories generate important conversations in our communities. There is something about Facebook that makes is seem like your sitting around talking with your friends. Woodinville’s Facebook page often has conversations that never make it onto the website.
3) Keep Your Neighbors Informed
When folks have questions (like where to buy Girl Scout cookies), road closings and more, they turn to each other on our Facebook page to get answers. Let's help keep each other informed.
4) Stay Connected With Neighbors and Readers
At Patch, it's not always about breaking news. Sometimes we just like a great conversation — like when I asked a week ago if anyone else noticed it was really quiet on Facebook, it sparked a great conversation.
5) Extended Photo Galleries
We want more ways to showcase events and gatherings in Woodinville, our Facebook page is a great place for the community to do that.
And of course, the undying gratituted of your Woodinville Patch staff.
