Internet social networking has exploded in recent years, and websites such as Facebook and Twitter attract millions of users. This on-line community fosters a connection between its users, and allows distribution of user-generated content (like pictures, profiles, music, video, and text).
NRA has been a part of this social technology for some time now, with a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. By actively participating in these new media, we are able to reach out to more potential members and supporters than ever before.
The current king of on-line social networking is Facebook. NRA’s Facebook page continues to be extremely popular. In fact, thanks to you, our page has grown from about 300,000 fans on July 28, 2010 to over 1,181,000 fans as of this week!
Please do what these fans have done and join our Fan page at http://www.facebook.com/National-Rifle-Association.
Twitter is a micro-blogging service that allows users to send regular text updates (known as “tweets”) to “followers” who have subscribed to them. To sign up to receive NRA-ILA “tweets,” please visit http://twitter.com/NRAILA. With this year’s critically important elections just around the corner, you can also get timely election and endorsement messages and instant updates from NRA’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) a by visiting http://twitter.com/nrapvf and signing up (for additional voting and election updates and information, you may also visit the official NRA-PVF site at www.nrapvf.org).
If we are going to actively reach and recruit the future leaders of the pro-gun movement, we must take full advantage of these on-line social networking resources. Please consider getting involved today!
