A popular Kansas Facebook page with more than 73,000 likes has tabbed Visit Goodland ~ Sherman Co. Kansas as No. 5 on its list of “Top 10 Kansas-Related Facebook Pages You Should Like”.
The page, “F*ck You, I’m From Kansas”, listed the Goodland page in its blog, FYIFK.com. The blogger said that the Top 10 pages were not chosen because of any monetary consideration, “but they’re just pages we like by people we find interesting. They’ll give you a good idea of the Kansas scene, with some fun to boot.”
Blogger complimented Visit Goodland’s Facebookers, saying, “Goodland has done what hopefully most Kansas towns will figure out and use to their advantage. They have harnessed the power of social media, combined it with the wonderful quirkiness of their community, and created a Facebook tourism page that you will enjoy visiting. It will make you feel at home, and will inspire you to visit ‘Visit Goodland’.”
“We are so delighted that our community has been recognized. This is a terrific affirmation for all our work,” Sherman County Convention & Visitors Bureau Director Donna Price said. “This page is a team effort between me and Assistant Director Roxie Yonkey.”
The Visit Goodland page’s like numbers have trended dramatically upward since October 2013, jumping 134 percent.
“We hope that this recognition will encourage more people to like our page and learn more about the wonderful community it represents,” Price said.
