We’re big social media fans here at Next Door Media, and with each site we’ve launched, you’ll find a corresponding Facebook and Twitter account. We’ve added up all the fans and followers across the 10 sites in the network, and much to our surprise, we’re nearing 40,000 — which is greater than the primary social media accounts (Facebook+Twitter) for every media company in town except KING 5 and the Seattle Times (yes, bigger than KIRO, KOMO and the Seattle PI.)
Certainly, there’s a little overlap between accounts — for example, someone may be fans of My Ballard and PhinneyWood on Facebook — but we’ve found residents tend to “like” and follow their neighborhoods. Of all the sites, My Ballard has the largest reach: about 12,000 combined fans and followers, with Queen Anne View and My Green Lake following on our most social list.
To “like” or follow a neighborhood site, visit that’s site home page and look for the Facebook and Twitter buttons.
