WCAX Facebook page reaches 100K 'likes'

Posted: Updated:

WCAX-TV marked a major social media milestone Wednesday; we have reached 100,000 Facebook "likes" thanks to you. One-hundred-thousand of you have liked the WCAX Facebook page for its mix of news, weather, sports and a little bit of fun.

Remember when Dale Earnhardt Junior came to Essex? Twenty-five-thousand of you clicked on our story to hear what he had to say.

And when we're not on air, the WCAX Facebook page does not slow down. From election nights to town meetings, you've often found the results here first.

Some of your photos proved to be a hit on our page, as well. Our award winning Leafie campaign allowed you to share some of your fall foliage shots from New York, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Tropical Storm Irene hit in 2011, causing devastating damage across our region. Our Facebook page proved to be a valuable public safety resource. Thousands of you were able to find out which roads were closed and where people could go for help.

And when we weren't posting the news of the day, our Facebook page has helped reunite lost pets with their owners as you've stepped up to share their images.

And when a nurse from Barre stepped up to buy breakfast for someone she didn't know. Her simple act of kindness spread around the world. More than 10,000 of you shared the news of her good deed.

We couldn't have done it without you. So keep the likes, clicks and shares coming.
