I am skeptical of Facebook’s ability to draw people to events and causes. In the past, I have gotten mixed results with different things I have promoted…some have turned out great and some not-so-great.
Just because someone becomes a fan or likes something you do on Facebook, it doesn’t translate into tangible support. I think people get too carried away with the number of people who click to support them or become a fan of what they are doing whether it be for a business, cause or event. It is just too easy to click on something on Facebook and never give it a second thought.
Enter Saint Adalbert Basilica…
The Basilica has about 700 Facebook fans…I created an event asking if Saint Adalbert’s could get at least 200 of these fans to attend a mass on 07/25/2010.
So…now we will see what happens!!!
I do think Facebook is a part of the mix in promoting things, but I do think people put too much stock in its effectiveness.
Oh…COME TO THE MASS…Saint Adalbert’s is truly a magnificent church!!!
