I don’t think there’s any EU citizens who will disagree that the massive campaign to improve the EU administration’s image in social media is a success – and money well spent!
One million people follow the European Parliament on Facebook, making it the biggest Facebook page of any of the European institutions, the parliament proudly announced on Monday.
In light of what the same Parliament have spent on different measures to improve their cracking image lately, it puts a price tag on every follower at about 3 buck. I don’t know if that’s in line with the current market rates, but it seems a little stiff to me…
But hey! One million followers!
Think about what you can do with one million Facebook followers!
No. seriously. Think about it.
