Since The City of College Station joined the social media revolution in early 2009, sites such as Facebook and Twitter have become a mainstay in our efforts to effectively communicate information about our programs, services, events and activities.
In the early days, we had only a few hundred Facebook and Twitter followers. But despite the early naysayers, our social media presence has continued to grow. In 2015, the number of fans following our Facebook page increased by 55 percent to 11,400 and the number of our Twitter followers rose by 33 percent to 12,800.
We posted almost 800 tweets in 2015, resulting in nearly 2,800 retweets. The top tweet noted that the attendance at the Texas A&M-Mississippi State game was almost identical to our October population estimate. It had 621 retweets and 481 likes.
