It’s official, folks – the winner of the “1000 Facebook Fan Fest” (and the “Best Facebook 1000 Fan Date Guesser” title) is Buddy Byrd!
I can’t believe how close this one was – and in fact, part of the reason it took me a couple of days to make an announcement about it is because I still wasn’t 100% sure who the winner was! After consulting with “Facebook Insights” data (yes, I felt rather smart and savvy saying that – haha), it seems that Buddy (June 12) edged out David (June 13) by a smidge!
Thanks to everyone who participated! I definitely had a LOT of fun with this – although it certainly got a little crazy once the guesses started flying in all at once (I had to turn comment moderation off completely for a while there just so people could see what others were guessing right away).
It was so much fun in fact, that I’ve decided to gear up for the “5000 Facebook Fan Fest”! Now before you start grumbling about how it’s going to be years before we hit that – be assured that we’ll be there much sooner than you might think! It will also be nice to open up the field a bit more this time, to make things interesting! More participants, more guesses – more excitement!
Of course, I’ll need to make it worth the wait with a better prize as well! I’m pretty sure I know what I’m going to give the winner – but I will wait until I announce the contest before letting the cat out of the bag.
