CatholicTV Facebook Fans Pass 5000
On Easter weekend 2010, the CatholicTV® Network celebrated another social media milestone. The network reached 5,000 fans on its very active Facebook page. The CatholicTV Network’s official Facebook fan page launched in February of 2009, giving viewers and supporters a new tool to share their passion for CatholicTV programming.
The website fan page features CatholicTV video clips, background information, photo albums, and updates. Updates, announcements, and other communications keep CatholicTV fans entertained and informed about the work of the CatholicTV network. Recently, a Facebook “tour” of the CatholicTV studios was launched.
"Our Facebook fan page is exciting because we can keep fans in the loop about upcoming events and ongoing recording of their favorite shows and share news about new series projects," said Jay Fadden, CatholicTV Network General Manager. "The CatholicTV page gives us one more way to connect with our fans because their feedback is encouraged. We look forward to interacting with viewers and those who are interested in helping us spread the Good News.”
Facebook users who select the CatholicTV fan page may post their comments. Additionally, on CatholicTV.com the iCatholic section provides bloggers, videographers, and commentators the opportunity to update with photos, videos, and other user content.
Fr. Robert Reed, Director of the CatholicTV Network sees CatholicTV and its viewers as a family. He recently said, “The CatholicTV Network is a unique family that stretches across the United States and among many viewers internationally at CatholicTV.com. The CatholicTV family is strengthened and informed by our elaborate and always fresh Facebook page. We really like to keep people informed about what's coming up on CatholicTV.”
