There would be no opinion, little promotion, just see if His words would be as infectious and life changing on Facebook as they have been in other contexts in History.
I was quite nervous at the prospect, what would people think, would I be able to keep up with the posts, would it grow at all ?
I shared the new page https://www.facebook.com/jesusmoment with my friends on the 6th of September 2011 (The official launch day) and then started to watch what happened.
To my surprise only around 10% of my friends have liked the page, the rest of the growth has been from it's viral use by folk who have like the page or shared it with their friends.
If I'm honest I'm still torn between my human nature to advertise the site. I did purchase $200 of facebook adverts, and what is interesting is, while the adverts did contribute 265 new likes, over 112 likes have come from the page growing organically.
The other issue I have had is whether I crowded the stream with nice pictures, stories, videos etc. or keep it pure with just the scripture and then what time of day do I post. After a flurry of initial new content, I have decided on minimalism and intrestingly the response rates have been higher.
So at the time of writing I am a few days away from breaking the 500 barrier, I am going to run until Christmas to see what kind of numbers I have then. I'll update you and let you know around that time. Let me know what you think of the project.
