I Want To Take 20,000 Facebookers Fishing
Written by Dave Mercer on November 8, 2010
So as most of you know I’m a bit of a social media freak. When I’m not on the water and even sometimes when I am on the water, I spend a ton of time on Facebook & Twitter. That’s why I’m so proud of the fact that our facebook page now has over 20,000 fans or like, as facebook now calls them. That’s right: 20,000 and every time I say or even type it I’m still amazed that 20,000 like me and our little show Facts of Fishing .
So here’s the deal. Over the last few weeks we knew or hoped that we may soon crack the 20,000 fan mark so we started to think of something special that we could do to celebrate it. After a few days of thinking around the water cooler over here at Facts of Fishing world wide head quarters we still had no ideas. So we turned to our Facebook fans and asked them or you depending on who is reading this what we should do. Well, we sure got some great ideas! However, we did not have it in the budget to give everyone a boat or to stage a huge party called DAVESTOCK (although we do hope to do DAVESTOCK one day in the future lol). The # 1 thing people wanted was for me to take one of them fishing so that’s what I’m going to do. I really wish I could take every single member fishing but there is just not enough room on my boat and even if there was, our lines would get all tangled. So I will be picking my fishing buddy at the end of the week and if you think that it should be you then let me know. All you have to do is leave a comment, post a picture or even a video of why it should be you on our facebook page and maybe we will be going fishing soon. As always we want to pick the biggest, craziest and most off-the-wall fan (I get along with crazy people better) so be creative.
I’m not sure when or where we will be going fishing or what we will even be fishing for but we will figure that out sometime soon. If you are not already a member of our facebook group this is how you find us http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-Mercers-Facts-of-Fishing/358291215630
Please post a comment here and let everyone know what you think of this idea.
