Equinox Fitness Clubs | Facebook | Ace In The Hole
Thank you to everyone for participating in the Social Media test pilot for Chicago!
We have made tremendous strides within the past few months by stating our
presence within the social media universe. As Equinox continues to grow into
new markets, we were the ﬁrst region within the company selected to adapt to
one of the new markets – Facebook. The contributions and efforts have been
We were given a goal to reach 2,000 Facebook likes by September 2013.
Following our Social Media Boot Camp held in late March, we were already at
766 Facebook likes for the Chicago region. This would mean we would need
to capture 1,234 Facebook likes within the next ﬁve months to reach our goal.
On May 8, 2013, we exceeded our half way checkpoint by reaching 1,001 likes.
Today, we are currently at 1,219 Facebook likes (61% to plan) and are
781 Facebook likes shy of our goal.
ACE IN THE HOLE
With less than two months to go, it’s time to unleash the secret weapon! We are
the Chicago region with a very dynamic and powerful team, and we are going to
reach the ﬁnish line together.
If you are in it to win it, then please pay very close attention to see how you can
participate in order to make this a huge win for the Chicago region!
WHAT IS A FACEBOOK LIKE?
The like button is a feature of social networking service Facebook,
where users can like content such as status updates, comments,
photos, links shared by friends, and advertisements. It is also a
feature of the Facebook Platform that enables participating websites
to display a button which enable sharing the site's content with friends.
When a user clicks the Like button, the content appears in the News
Feeds of that user's friends. The button also displays the number of
users that liked each piece of content, and may show a full or partial
list of those users.
Facebook describes "liking" as a way for users to give positive
feedback and connect with things they care about.
