Edmonds Patch is on a mission: Get more than 1,000 "Likes" on our Facebook page. Reaching 1,000 has become sort of a milestone among the 850-some Patch sites across the country—and most of them launched well before Edmonds.
So we're playing catch-up.
But we think it's important, because over the 19 months since our launch, it has become apparent that our community information site is a multilayer platform.
We know Edmonds is as tech-savvy and plugged into local news as anywhere else around—and we've been challenged by our sister sites in Shoreline and Woodinville!
Bragging rights not enough of an incentive to "Like" Edmonds Patch on Facebook? Here are five reasons.
1) Real-time Updates About News
We regularly update the page with news and notes from the community that don't always make it to the Patch website. Stay in the know!
2) You Help Create the Conversation
Big or small stories generate important conversations in our communities. There is something about Facebook that makes it seem like you're sitting around talking with your friends. Edmonds Patch’s Facebook page often has conversations that never make it onto the website—as well as news tips that do turn into important stories.
3) Keep Your Neighbors Informed
When folks have questions (like why is my power suddenly out), road closings and more, they turn to each other on our Facebook page to get answers. Let's help keep each other informed.
4) Stay Connected With Neighbors and Readers
At Edmonds Patch, it's not always about breaking news. Sometimes we just like a great conversation.
5) Extended Photo Galleries
When we want more ways to showcase events and gatherings in Edmonds, our Facebook page is a great place for the community to do that.
And of course, "Like" us and you'll earn the undying gratitude of your Edmonds Patch editor Brian Soergel.
