LP Monday Message: Facebook Fans blow past 70,000!

July 12, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

If you’ve been getting our Monday Messages, you might remember just a couple of months ago I announced that the number of fans on our Facebook fanpage had passed 40,000.

Well, last weekend our fanpage passed 70,000! Wow!

Our Facebook fanpage was first set up by former LNC Vice Chair Chuck Moulton. Since last September, it has been actively run by LP headquarters interns or former interns who became staff members. I’m pleased that our Facebook fanpage is run by young Libertarians!

Last week (before we hit 70,000), I researched our Facebook fan growth compared to some other politics-oriented organizations. Here’s what I found:

Thanks to all our fans, and to all you Libertarians who keep our party moving and growing!
