Waltham's Social Media Saturday
Every Saturday we look at the week that was on Waltham Patch's Facebook and Twitter feeds.
Here at Waltham Patch we take social media pretty seriously.
The platform is one way we look to interact with you, answer your questions and get to see what's on your mind. Social Media Saturday is a weekly feature where we highlight your questions and thoughts you've shared on Facebook and other media throughout the past week.
We'll also point you to some new and interesting pages you may not have known about before.
Highlights Of The Week
- Waltham Patch's Facebook page's popularity continued to rise. At the end of this week, Patch had 260 likes, wherease we had 254 at the end of last week. Among the new likes was Flannery O'Brien.
- Patch received an interesting comment from reader Christine Gill: "This is a great resource. I work in Waltham, but live in Weymouth and am concerned about the Charles River so this is so helpful for me. Thank you!," she said of Patch's live coverage of Hurricane Irene.
