So I don't know about you, but these days it seems like absolutely everyone I know is on Facebook! It's not like Facebook is new, in fact it's been around since February of 2004. But for whatever reason, it's caught on like wildfire in the past six months (they've almost doubled their user base from 100 million to 175 million!) and it's running rampant! I've reconnected with what feels like every single person I went to high school with, old co-workers from my ad agency days at DDB Los Angeles, even a long lost cousin that I haven't spoken to in years.
If you haven't joined, it's a great way to reconnect with people you've lost touch with and see what they're up to (that total punk rocker guy from high school is now a father of six and a brain surgeon!), stay in touch with people that you might not keep up with on regular basis (look Aunt Alma, the baby looks so cute in the outfit you sent us!) and share and support your favorite political figures, celebrities, worthy causes and can't-live-without businesses (like your all time favorite children's boutique in downtown Santa Rosa).
The latter of course is what prompted me to create a Facebook Fan Page for Cupcake. It's a great way to invite our group of dedicated customers to share in new arrival news, upcoming sales, in-store events and general store happenings. It's also a great way to chat with other Cupcake fans, post pictures of your little ones in their Cupcake garb and keep in touch with me (although a face-to-face in the store is always great!). It's our very own Cupcake community!
Facebook is calling your name (and so is your fourth grade crush)! So what are you waiting for? Jump on the band wagon and show the world what you've been up to, but most importantly, don't forget to become a fan of Cupcake.
