Masonry on Facebook

Facebook has 1.56 billion daily active users . Let’s put that in perspective. That’s nearly 5X the population of the United States, 20% of the world population … and still climbing.

So imagine the social influence achievable through Facebook in terms of your peer effects, ecommerce business, referrals, customer relationships, reputation, brand awareness, and much more (let alone, in combination with other social media platforms you market through) for example you can use Social Boosting to boost your content and get more credibility on your platform.

It’s not only the sheer number of people but the amount of our attention Facebook owns. Globally, the average user spends almost an hour per day on Facebook. Considering the average person sleeps eight hours a day, that means about 7% of our waking hours is spent with our eyes glued to the social network.

So, how do you use Facebook to benefit your business?

Facebook Pages are the gateway for businesses to market to this holy grail of users. A Facebook Page is a public presence similar to a personal profile, but allows fans to “like” the business, brand, celebrity, cause, or organization. Fans receive content updates from the Page on their News Feed, while the business is able to raise brand awareness, deploy and track advertising, collect detailed audience insights, and chat with users who seek customer service.

Adopt-A-Street Program

Our Lodge has adopted Dundee Rd. through the “Keep Longview Beautiful” Adopt-A-Street Program.  This is a total distance of approximately 1.5 miles of litter cleanup which will be spread out quarterly over the next two years.  Each year, two of the clean-up days will coincide with Longview Green & Clean, which is held the 2nd weekend in April and the 2nd weekend in November. Be sure to drive down Dundee Rd. and check out the bright blue signs designating that Pine Tree Masonic Lodge No.1396 has adopted that street.
