CCA's Facebook Fan Count Reaches 10,000
Employees at CCA's Facility Support Center - its national headquarters - celebrated with Facebook-themed cookies.
CCA recently celebrated a social media milestone: the company's Facebook fan count reached 10,000 – and counting.
At the beginning of 2012 CCA had fewer than 4,000 Facebook fans. Attracting 6,000 fans in a single year is major growth compared to the Facebook fan count of many similar organizations. Today CCA has the largest Facebook following of any correctional system in the country.
While the majority of CCA's Facebook fans are employees, other fans include government and supplier partners, employee family members, neighbors in CCA communities and inmates' families.
"It's not uncommon to have dozens or hundreds of fans like or comment on our posts," says Louise Grant, CCA vice president, Communications. "And while we know that Facebook is not accessible on CCA computers, our ability to communicate with employees in a more personal setting outside of work has been meaningful to the company."
