V.I.A. (and you) hit an Insta-milestone


Over the years we’ve been working hard to grow our social reach, increasing the reach of the awesomeness. On this date last year our FACEBOOK PAGE had 35,000 Likes, and we’ve since doubled it to 70,000. Our TWITTER ACCOUNT now has a solid 67,000 tweeps looking for reminders of what keeps them living in this city.

Yesterday we celebrated a milestone by reaching 10,000 followers on INSTAGRAM so I figured I’d share here on the blog, just in case you’re not following along yet. Check us out at instagram.com/viawesome, and be sure to tag your own photos with #vancouverisawesome so that @JennPerutka who curates our stream can feature them! The account has so far mostly been made up of your photos of things that make the city awesome. There are over 111,000 photos using the hashtag now and it has become a virtual peek inside every corner of this city. Check it out.
