‘Member when we reported last week about Facebook’s pending announcement on “the latest technology powering Facebook?” Well, seems like Mark Zuckerberg and crew had a different view about “technology” and “power” — its event made no mention of the renewable energies that Greenpeace’s Unfriend Coal campaign has suggested to The Social Network. Luckily, Unfriend Coal has not moped off with its head hanging low. This week it is reaching for a Guinness — a Guinness World Record for the greatest number of comments on a Facebook post within 24 hours.
On Wednesday, April 13, Unfriend Coal will place a post on its Facebook Fan Page simultaneously worldwide – then the page’s fans are encouraged to start commenting to participate in the record. The 50 best commenters will win a ‘Facebook Unfriend Coal’ t-shirt. (I have one — organic goodness and super comfy.) Greenpeace will display the comments on a giant LCD screen at Facebook’s global headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
More info on this Guinness attempt can be found at Unfriend Coal’s Facebook event page.
What do you think of Unfriend Coal’s latest effort to get Facebook to go green? Will you participate in its Guinness Record attempt?
