Last night at 10:53 p.m. EST, Farmers’ Almanac hit the 1,000,000 mark of followers on Facebook. The growth has been nothing short of staggering. In July 2014, we had 250,000 likes; a year earlier it was 75,000. Today it is one million and growing! That is an incredible number of eyeballs following the Farmers’ Almanac brand. We owe it all to you, our readers — in print and online — for your support.
I’ve been watching the Facebook numbers grow and to finally reach 1,000,000 has great significance. It’s almost the number of people we have in the entire State of Maine. Growing our fan base and readership is really about providing information that challenges, excites, and informs folks, and this milestone proves we are still relevant, able to provide you with information that matters to you– from the weather that’s outside your window, to the stars and planets above you, to money saving tips, and how to live a more healthy lifestyle.
We hope you’ll continue to follow the Farmers’ Almanac in the social media world. We can be found at Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Vine and most assuredly, Facebook.
The 2017 Farmers’ Almanac will be our 200th edition and we’ll be celebrating this milestone as well, as we charge into our third century. From a small print edition that started in 1818 reaching small farmers to a global reach online and on store shelves in 2016, we’re growing!
So thank you! And here’s to 2 million!
