Glasgow 2014 is Trending...

Facebook profile pictures with the number 150,000 written across

Last week Glasgow 2014 achieved something pretty significant – we received our 150,000th “like” on Facebook.

With 150,000 Facebook fans and over 35,000 Twitter followers, it’s obvious that Scotland and the rest of the world are keen to join in and keep updated with everything that’s going on with the Games.

Facebook fan Steve Harris said that he was looking for a quick and easy way to find out all the latest information on preparations for the Games.

“Hoping your status updates will give great info up until kick-off and beyond.”

Many Facebook fans were also eager to find out more about volunteering at the Games.

“I want to be part of something special, and make everyone who comes to the Games remember what a great place Scotland is and how friendly we all are!” said Mary Ferrie.

It’s not surprising that many of our fans and followers on social media are native Glaswegians with Glasgow recently being named chattiest UK city on Twitter. And come Games-Time, those Glaswegian fans and followers are keen to share their chat with the rest of the world.

Allison McKenzie said she was looking forward to coming home to Glasgow and seeing the city’s spirit showcased to the rest of world. And, she added, “enjoying some Scottish humour.”

Anas Hassan said he couldn’t wait to show everyone what Glasgow and Scotland have to offer and put on the greatest Commonwealth Games ever.
