UPDATE: This thing has gotten pretty insane over the last couple days. It's passed the local viralness of the Google Fiber thing at this point. As of 12:37 Thursday morning, Fresno is in the lead over Salt Lake City by about 170,000. But they keep dogging us, plus their comment total is almost matching Fresno's. So keep at it and get commenting... and like-ing... and sharing.
SIDE NOTE: It's been pretty awesome to see Fresno's "small town" pride really pushing this thing and getting us to first (for the moment). And seeing Fresnans helping Bakersfield and Sacramento rise up in the ranks is pretty awesome too.
SIDE NOTE #2: Check out Paula Lloyd's Fresno Bee article in Thursday's edition about the latest (also look to the left of the article for more "liking" tips).
ORIGINAL POST (DEC 27TH):
Walmart is run by a bunch of bastards. Their *cough* alleged *cough* predatory pricing practices have probably put more small businesses out of business than any one thing in retail. Plus they smell. But if they're going to give out some of their dirty money to fight some hunger, we want that. Fresno needs that.
Unless you've been in a self-imposed local media/Facebook blackout, you know about the whole fighting hunger Walmart million bucks thing. Can't imagine there isn't somebody local on F-book that's not "liked" Fresno yet. But if you haven't...
Make sure you're logged into your Facebook. Then go here and "like" Fresno, make a comment, post on your wall annoying telling your friends so they can do the same (even the non-Fresnan ones). Maybe you'll pull us out of 2nd place, re-passing Salt Lake City.
Yeah, Walmart giving a million dollars out is equivalent to you giving a nickle to a Tower Rat. But it's something and would go a long way in Fresno. The "liking" finally ends on Friday.
