The race to reach 1,000,000 supporters on Facebook

RunObama.com: Talking ‘Bout An Obama Facebook Revolution

On January 16, someone named Farouk Olu Aregbe created an Obama Facebook Group with the (admittedly) audacious goal of reaching one million members. The group, entitled “Barack Obama (One Million Strong for Barack)” even had a timeline for reaching one million:

A million members would easily it largest Facebook group period (I believe). And it would dwarf, no swamp, any other single political group out there. For example, The Democratic Party’s Facebook group has only 4,480 members, the College Democrats clock in at 3,374.

But of course, 10,000, which was reached on January 20th, is a long way from 1,000,000.

Yesterday, when I blogged about the group on RunObama.com, I noticed it had grown from 66,599 to 66,730 in a matter of minutes as I was writing about it. Which means the group added 56,730 members in just 5 days, which opened my eyes.

But nothing compared to today, when I logged in at around 3:30pm to find that the group had grown to 90,094 members.

As of right now, the group has 127,774 members.

    Thank you for endorsing Mr. Obama.

    If you have contact with Mr. Obama or Michelle please try to bring this article to their attention.

    The New York Times Just Let the cat out of the bag on the Clintons in the following noted article.

    There is enough Ammunition, Firepower and Dirt in the below noted NEW YORK TIMES article to run Bill and Hillary out of town on a rail!

    I recommend you read “CLINTON DONORS OVERLAP” by typing it in your PC web search bar.

    It’s a short 2 1/2 pages.

    Its link does not work or I would put it on here for you.

    Hillary supporters will even change their minds after reading the article, I did!

    Barack supporters need to copy this note and email it to everyone they know and YOU NEED READ IT ALSO!.

    Trying to get all of you informed before SUPER TUESDAY

    Thanks Ron 701-947-2085

    I wouldn’t consider my blog post above an endorsement.

    Btw, the Facebook group “Barack Obama (One Million Strong for Barack)” has meanwhile reached 439,117 group members.
