We recently lost one of our Facebook pages. We used to have two—one that was an official Facebook “fan page” with about 60 fans, and one that was an actual Facebook person-account, which had over 1,000 friends. Facebook decided to delete our person-account, on the grounds that “GameCola is not actually a person.”
I guess they have a point.
Unfortunately, this left us in a hole, as our person-account was our number one source for readership growth. We needed a replacement, and we needed it stat. (I’m assuming that means fast.) So we turned to the aforementioned totally ignored fan page.
But how to get new people to “like” our Facebook page?
The GameCola Board of Directors had a meeting (this was actually just me talking to my collection of Phoenix Wright dollies), and we decided that the best way to promote our Facebook page would be to make a turn-of-the-century-style silent film all about how, if you don’t “like” our Facebook page, you’ll be sad forever. What follows is that video. Enjoy!
