Since the conception of social media sharing and networking, sites like Facebook, Twitter and the like have proliferated across the Internet like an outbreak of High School chlamydia. Aside from enabling you to stalk your office crush and remember your mom’s birthday, social media has become an exceptionally useful tool in helping dreams become reality and potentially profitable, too.
Why? Because Science is and always has been a labor of love and passion for me, and I’ve been fortunate enough to gather a tremendous following quite organically. Success, however, is no finite thing and so the next step has been the creation of WBS very own Facebook page, so that it can hopefully move to the next tier of success. Click on the following link to view it:
I need your help to achieve this success, but this can be a two-way relationship for us… If you take the time to check out the new WBS Facebook page and give it a hearty Facebook “Like,” I will personally thank you by recommending your blog to my 23,000 followers on the official WBS’ website page. All you have to do is (1) like the WBS Facebook page and (2) leave a comment under THIS post with your name and blog site. Please make sure the name you leave corresponds with your Facebook ID or else I won’t know it’s you. I’ll be publishing my appreciation on Wednesday 9th December and I’ll do it regardless of how pathetic the response.
If this all doesn’t work for you, here are three other reasons you might consider liking the new Why? Because Science Facebook page:
- You’ll get sexy servings of moist science in your box, I mean, in your inbox. Forget opening two illicit Internet windows at work – by liking this page, you’ll get frequent science updates on your Facebook wall, meaning you can spy on your ex and educate/entertain yourself at the same time!
- You can dilute the vapid updates and puke-worthy declarations of love of your Facebook “friends” with sexy, entertaining science news, blogs, funny pictures and holy-crap-did-you-see-that? videos. You can even impress your attractive colleague with your fantastic knowledge on trending science topics and maybe end up lucky like this guy…
- You’ll be helping me achieve the dream of someday publishing a book, because a large following on Facebook motivates publishers to take long-suffering science nerds like me seriously.
That is all, thank you!
