Facebook's Request For Your Defining Moment Gets Overwhelming

Within an hour of asking members what their defining Facebook moment was this year, 3,133 people responded to the social network's question on the company's official page.

Talk about a popular post: Within an hour of asking members what their defining Facebook moment was this year, 3,133 people responded to the social network’s question on the company’s official page. Likes were double that amount.

Facebook had the best of intentions, exhibiting something all page administrators could learn from: Ask readers a question in a way that shows a genuine interest in hearing what they have to say.

This post makes all the more business sense when compared to how many people reacted to Facebook’s annual Memology study. By lunch time yesterday, many wall posts and status updates humorously stated things like “I’ve never seen the acronym HMU until just now.”

Most likely that number one status update for the year, HMU, meaning “Hit me up,” could have great popularity among demographic groups we don’t belong to. Said group in all likelihood updated their statuses more frequently than others did. Regardless, Facebook obviously got the message that not everyone felt like their interests were represented in the Memology.

We’re just getting to read the thread that’s going up Facebook’s home page, but would like to know what you’re planning to post there. What was your favorite moment on the social network this year?
