Social Media Saturday is a weekly feature where Holliston Patch highlights some of what people shared on Facebook and other media in the past week.
We'll also point you to some new and interesting pages you may not have known about before, and of course we'll name our social media page of the week; a rare honor, indeed! If you would like a mention in this column email Faith594@msn.com and tell us why we should include your page. We choose based on the pop of the page, the number of likes and the quality of your wall. We love to know about new pages, so be sure to give us a holler for inclusion.
Highlights of the Week
Holliston Patch currently has 407 followers on Facebook; a proud feat. We hope to see 450 by year's end so be sure to tell your friends to give us a click. We also have a presence on Twitter. We are @HollistonPatch. If you follow us, we'll follow you back; we're kind that way.
Social Media Page of the Week
Our social media page of the week came to us unsolicited this week. With so many local companies clamoring for this honor, we had to scour Facebook in search of a page that pops with a lot of fascinating photos, a fair number of likes and a happening wall. This week's social media pick of the week goes to...drum roll, please The Dancing Arts Center. With 151 likes on Facebook, a large media presence in and around town and a wall that screams joy, this group deserves a shout-out. Give them a click and be sure to go see their next event if you missed the Nutcracker.
Your Town on Social Media
Once again it was a busy week on the Holliston Patch Facebook page. We continue to remind you to enter our Deck the Halls contest at www.deckthehalls.patch.com for the opportunity to win $100,000 for your local schools. We also chatted about what you leave out for Santa and many other holiday related themes.
We ran a poll on whether or not you believe the Mayan calendar is a good predictor of the world's end. Seems most of you are skeptics. Okay, so only seven voted, but still four said it wasn't true, so we're going with the skeptic ruling.
We shared information on the menorah lighting and other Hanukkah events, and we told you about gunshots being reported in the police log.
With the winter solstice upon us, we are happy to share in the coming of light with all of our readers. We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year.
Here's to many more week's of social media madness. Want a shout out in this column? Email Faith594@msn.com.
