OUTstanding Lives Network Aims for Guiness World Record
OUTstanding Lives Network recently applied to Guiness World Record in the category of World's Largest Gay-Friendly Facebook Group.
Last year, Sharon Love created a Facebook group that attracted over two million members in just over two weeks, with no advertising at all (it was one of over 40 social networks she created to inspire pride and save lives of bullied gay youth). The group is called “I Bet We Can Find 1,000,000 People who Support Same-Sex Marriage”.
To see the group that attracted so many people, click here. “I would like to get in the Guiness Book of World Records so the publicity will help more gay, lesbian. bisexual and trans youth find out about the group,” explains Love. “If they know that there are many people who support them, we will prevent bullying and suicide and save more lives. It will also, hopefully, convince Facebook to keep our group with all our members (currently they are archiving most groups from the past).”
As you may know, a facebook group is different from a facebook page (the latter usually uses advertising; a group is grassroots). This may also be the World's Largest Facebook Group, period.
The next goal of is to create videos that reach millions, inspire pride and save young lives. “We're not a charity, but a very good cause to inspire pride and save young lives,” says Love. “We're a social purpose enterprise, aiming to make a living by making a difference.”
