Top 10 Posts of 2014

Not just out of my own curiosity (I love numbers) I wanted to dig a bit deeper into Sanford365’s Facebook statistics. I wanted to learn more about what our readers like and like to share. Of course, there is a much more detailed analysis to things and we will soon start a reader survey too, but I wanted to share just a glimpse of what Facebook has told me…

Here are the Top 10 Facebook Posts of Sanford365 in 2014 (out of close to 1,500 posts!), based on Lifetime Post Total Reach:

  1. I love them all and have shared quite a few Sanford 365 posts. You all do a great job. I am a bit disappointed in #10 though–I mean, it’s a chain and its burgers, though tolerable, are certainly not great. It’s a chain! There are so many better, locally owned restaurants in Sanford. Let’s work to promote them and keep that money in Sanford, not send it to some godawful corporate headquarters located in another state! But, the people have spoken. Now let’s have those who shop/eat local be a bit more vocal. We love Sanford! Eat Local! Shop Local! Party Local!

    • Thank you Leon πŸ˜‰ I totally agree, we need to support local wherever we can!! There are so many great small restaurants around town (not just in the historic district, there are many located also in the mall area, for example Bambu Vietnamese, Chianti’s and Maru Shushi to name a few) and we will continue to promote them πŸ™‚ Happy new year!
