WASHINGTON, DC- Today, the FreedomWorks fan page broke the 1 million fan benchmark, making it the largest tea party affiliated group on Facebook.
“Breaking one million fans was a major part of our online outreach strategy leading into 2012,” commented John Campbell, Online Media Analyst for FreedomWorks. “With such a large audience, it is almost guaranteed that the average Facebook user visiting our page will discover at least one friend in their network is a fan of our organization and the principles that it stands for.”
FreedomWorks is the first grassroots tea party-friendly group to break 1 million fans on Facebook.
“The popularity of our fan page is further evidence that the ideas of individual liberty and fiscal responsibility are at the center of American politics, and are popular across all ideological and demographic backgrounds,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks.
“Online networks are essential for the success of such a large, decentralized movement. Tools like Facebook allow tea party activists to educate themselves on the issues and connect with like-minded individuals across the country without a bureaucracy or hierarchy getting in the way,” added Kibbe. “We plan to engage this large audience of politically minded Americans, and translate their enthusiasm online into boots-on-the-ground action in 2012.”
