Hubble thanks its one million Facebook friends
Join the ESA/Hubble campaign and be part of the world of Hubble
7 November 2014
"Thank you, Hubble friend! You're one in a million!" is the message that the people behind the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have sent to the one million friends of the ESA/Hubble Facebook page.
Scientists, engineers, management staff, IT, web, graphics or communication specialists and others who have worked for Hubble wanted to thank the friends of Hubble who remind them of the meaning behind their daily efforts.
In the first stage of the initiative, Hubble staff took selfies or group photos to show Facebook friends the people working behind the scenes for the world’s most loved space telescope. This resulted in a Facebook album where friends can meet our staff.
The second stage invites members of the general public to get creative and write the message "I'm a Hubble friend! I'm one in a million", along with their surname and their occupation or a hobby that defines them, in an original manner — in the sand of a beach, in a drawing, via a song or any other way.
Friends are encouraged to take a selfie with their message and post it on their Facebook, tagging the Hubble Space Telescope Facebook page (see Image B to the right) and using the hashtag #Hubble1Million. Making sure to set the privacy for both the photo and post to "public" so that we can find them.
The photos that convey the message in the most creative way will be added to the same Facebook album, next to the photos of Hubble employees. In this way we want to connect Hubble staff with the people behind the number one million.
Are you a Hubble friend? Then join our campaign now and show everyone you are part of the Hubble world!
