Shamrock Urself! Celebrate Your Irishness!
In the run up to St. Patrick's Day, we have an example of enduring Irish Pride within the world of Social Media. Shamrock Urself!, a campaign being run by a group of social media volunteers, enables Irish people and friends of Ireland to add a Shamrock Stamp to their Facebook profile picture through a Shamrock Urself! Application. The ethos of the campaign is about fun, enjoyment, and people getting involved. The key is you don't need to be Irish to be part of the campaign; you just need to want to be part of it all.
The background is a simple one. With Irish people based across the globe, coupled with doom and gloom that has become the spirit of the homeland, Irish people are craving a celebration commonality. Given the fact that if Facebook were a country, it would be the 3rd largest in the world, this gives Ireland a virtual platform to spread the Saint Patrick's Day message of pride and positivity.
There are a host of Irish Brands taking part in the campaign; those who are joining in the ‘craic’ and doing their bit to spread a little Irishness this Paddy's day.
The ask for Irish People, Fans of Ireland and Irish Brand Fan Pages is both simple and quick. ShamrockUrself! using the application and post a status update to your friends & fans and tell them about Shamrock Urself www.facebook.com/shamrockurself.
We're supporting this Irish Pride Initiative. Are you?
If brands want to add a Shamrock to their business page profile, there is an additional step due to restrictions on Facebook that are beyond our control. Your Page Admin will have to save your business page profile picture onto their own page and shamrock it and then set it as the Business Page Profile
