Gen. Odierno Using Facebook

In half a day after mentioning his Facebook page on CNN this morning, US General Ray Odierno’s supporters have increased by an order of magnitude:

It did not take long for Facebook users to respond to U.S. General Ray Odierno’s Sunday appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

In less than seven hours, Odierno has increased the number of “supporters” connected to his new Facebook page by more than a factor of ten.

When his CNN interview initially aired Sunday morning, Odierno had roughly 70 followers on the social networking site and by Sunday afternoon, the general has nearly 900.

I checked a short while ago and he was approaching 1,300.

  1. If the numbers keep rising soon General Odierno will have to do an about Facebook.

    Wouldn’t you like to be the Major he assigns to keep his Facebook up to date?
