If you can’t beat them bribe them.
WPLG has decided they want 10,000 Facebook fans so bad they’re willing to give one person an iPad. According to a post on their site, when their Facebook page reaches 10,000 a winner will be picked during the following day’s 9am newscast. The fan who appears on the upper left position will be the winner and will get an Apple iPad
We can’t figure out why the number 10,000, could be because it’s a nice round number or because they are Channel 10, who knows. But we think WPLG is being kind of cheap. Just one tiny iPad? Come on Channel 10 you can do better. How about 10 iPads? It only seems fitting, 10 iPads for 10,000 followers, plus it goes well with your channel number. Not to mention how much better it would look to viewers having a theoretical 1:1000 chance to win versus 1:10,000.
As of this writing they have 4,941 followers. The TV station with the most followers though is WSVN, with 11,515 and no bribes. Their sister station in Boston, WHDH has 27,895!!
