PHILADELPHIA – Founded in 1994, on the cusp of the internet revolution, the Middle East Forum is pleased to announce that it has just reached 100,000 "likes" on its Facebook page:
Under the guidance of Grayson Levy, the Forum has worked to take advantage of new media technologies. MEF President Daniel Pipes puts this evolution in perspective: "When MEF got started, we mailed or faxed out articles in batches of a hundred. The internet then changed our life. We began with websites and e-mail distribution lists, and now have 20 million page visits to our website.
"We no longer depend on the media gatekeepers – many of which are hostile to our message – but can do much on our own."
Many Facebook "likes" allow MEF to boost its social media credibility, and bring its information and message to new audiences. We invite our readers who have not yet done so to "like" us on Facebook, and to invite their friends to "like" us as well.
MEF can also be followed on Twitter at @MEForum
For immediate release.
