• Baylor Facebook tops 140,000 followers

    Official Baylor University Facebook page

    Sometime over the past weekend, Baylor’s official Facebook page welcomed its 140,000th follower — one of just 45 colleges and universities nationwide to have topped that mark.

    Considering that Baylor only has about 165,000 living alumni, such a Facebook following indicates that a tremendous percentage of the Baylor family wants to stay connected to the university. Other year-end numbers bear that out:

    Getting back to Facebook, one of the great things about such social media platforms is that they allow for two-way communication. In the last year, for instance, Baylor fans have left more than 22,000 comments on the official Facebook page, and another 6,000 comments on Baylor Instagram photos. On Twitter, Bears have addressed or mentioned @Baylor 10,000 times; @BaylorProud adds another 5,000 mentions to the mix.

    Thanks for your engagement, Baylor family. We’re glad you like hearing from us, and we love hearing from you!

    Sic ’em, Bears!
