Sometime this week, Prairie Farmer’s Facebook page should hit 700 fans (698 as of press time). Not bad for a project we started just over a year ago.
We started the project to help bring you even more information in between issues. Also, we added a lot of content to the Prairie Farmer website (www.prairiefarmer.com) and we wanted to promote it in the social media realm.
We’ve also been successful in what I consider the most important goal, engaging more frequently with our readers. I’m a big fan of the informal feedback the site yields. Holly and I check it daily. Well, probably more like 20 times a day. I don’t know about her, but I’m constantly checking back to see what you thought about something I added to the wall.
Before adding this face to the Prairie Farmer image, feedback was limited to sending us an e-mail, calling, commenting on a blog or writing a letter. All are great means of communication, but they lack the sort of friendly community experience that the Facebook fan page provides.
If you’re a fan, thank you. We’ve enjoyed posting daily updates over the past year. If you’re not, what are you waiting for? Here’s a direct link (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Prairie-Farmer/142240394349) or you can hop on Facebook and search for Prairie Farmer. Join the fun, we want your input.
