WPLG First Local Station to Reach 100k Facebook Likes

WPLG Local 10 News

wplg.100k.Facebook.likesToday WPLG crossed the 100,000 Facebook likes mark, the first Miami news station to reach that number. As of this writing they are at 100,233 likes and growing as a Norwegian Cruise lines contest is taking place that requires people to like WPLG’s Facebook page to enter the contest.

Channel 10 started their drive for more Facebook likes in May 2010 by giving away iPads (and for which we ribbed them a bit) to get 10,000 likes. A few days later they upped their goal to 25,000 likes, and later had more giveaways that had goals for 50,000 and 60,000 likes.

  1. by far, more people now “like” their facebook page than actually watch their newscasts… they should concentrate on their on-air product which is just awful.

    • How true. These Facebook numbers mean nothing. It is the sweeps numbers that determine the advertisers rates and theirs have dropped. Who can take some of their over painted up ex cheerleaders they try a passoff for journalists. Without the telepromptor they are lost.
