Tar Sands Wolf Action Alert 2,230Key Accomplishments and Lessons Learned: Hitting over 100,000 users on three networks: This quarter we hit over 100,000 users on three different social networks- Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. The numbers continue to grow and our communities continue to develop. National Wildlife Magazine’s Photo Contest: The photo contest drove an impressive number of page views from Facebook this quarter and many of these page views did not come from any NWF page sharing it- so this organic traffic was from the content entrants promoting their entries. This is truly tapping into the value of social media. Our First Paid Twitter Advertisement As part of the Clean Air Coalition effort to announce the new CAFE standards, NWF was able to lend its Twitter handle for our first Twitter advertising experience. Largely because we had the highest number of followers we were able to help promote an important message under the promoted trend “#fuel4change”. The trend alone had an estimated 46.9 million impressions with a 5.75% engagement rate* (this is defined by what percentage of those tweets containing the #fuel4change hashtag were interacted with (clicks/replied to/retweeted) this effort lasted for 24 hours and gave us access to overall Twitter data on our account.
