We’ve had the goal of reaching 10,000 Facebook followers firmly in our sights for a while now, so despite the grey December weather outside the excitement inside the SoPublishing office was growing as we crept closer to the magic mark: 9,9998… refresh… 9,9999… refresh… 10,000 – cakes all round!

In fact, thanks in no small part to the viral success of the recent #SoSpectacular video and the enthusiastic participation in this year’s #SoGlosAdventGiveaway, our number of followers has been growing at a staggering rate – now almost reaching 11,000 just a few days later.

While SoGlos reaches more than ten times as many readers directly through the online magazine each month – and double the amount on Twitter – Facebook only continues to grow as a powerful way to engage with our local readership and we’re thrilled to have surpassed this milestone.

We believe in quality over quantity and value each of our organically-grown, local Facebook followers and particularly appreciate those who take the time to comment, like or share our posts.

Regularly posting breaking news, viral hot lists, unmissable events and exciting competitions, it’s great to know that SoGlos’s exclusive content on Facebook only continues to grow in popularity and reach more discerning readers.
