In spite of my one semester as a computer science major at Texas A&M — that’s when I learned the term “scholastic probation” — I’m far from being a numbers guy. But I do appreciate milestone numbers, like admiring my truck’s odometer when it hits 20,000, 21,112, 22,222, 23,456 … you get the idea.
Recently, I’ve noticed some milestone numbers as they relate to a few of the ways we communicate information about the City of College Station. Examples:
- Facebook likes: 4,800+
- Twitter followers: 4,000+
- YouTube views: 345,500+
- City blog posts: 200
- Total blog views: 50,000+
We employ means of communication other than social media tools, but because data is so readily available through these, I wanted to spend a little time focusing on one in particular: the College Station blog.
