If you’re on Facebook, can you please take 10 minutes and “suggest to friends” that they Fan our Facebook Page? I want to get to 10K fans by February 14th, so if say some of our readers can invite, say, 500 friends each, or more would be great, we might just get there.

Just to give you an idea of size and strength: we get 20% of our 115 unique visitors/month (according to Google Analytics) from Facebook. If we can increase by 25%, therefore, that’s a real help in beginning to fulfill our mission of communicating beyond our core, or choir. By comparison, Dwell Magazine—yes, The Dwell Magazine—only has about 13,000 Fans on Facebook. Treehugger—the greatest biggest original green web site on the planet—has about 18,000, including a group. We’re nearly on their playing field, social media-wise (if not otherwise), having just won the national green twitter Shorty Award—help us make the Big Show!

Go to then click “suggest to friends” at top left. Takes 10 minutes of lots of clicking!

Please comment below and let me know if you can help, and how many you invited.

    Darn, I JUST signed out of Facebook! Will do as soon as I log back in. Would love to help spread the word!

  2. Would be appreciated, thanks Mocha1. We'll need some serious help, bunch of readers inviting 100 or more friends, to get to 10K in less than a week.

  3. Happy to, done! Oh, hey, prAna, there's a question for you on our FB mats…about slippy slidey mats and what to do about 'em.
