ActBlue and Facebook

ActBlue and Facebook have more in common than a shared love of compound words: we’ve both created a space for people to make their passions known. With that in mind, it seemed only natural that ActBlue should have a Facebook page.

So take a minute of your Friday afternoon to become a fan of ActBlue on Facebook, and, of course, tell your friends!

We know that you have a lot on your plate, so the ActBlue Facebook page will be the place to read our blog entries and find out about the latest ActBlue news. It has a handy link to our Twitter feed, so you can find out what’s happening in real time.

You’ll also notice a new feature on your ActBlue contribution forms. Effective immediately, you’ll be able to share your donation on Facebook and Twitter. After you donate, just click on the appropriate button (see example below) and you can share your donation with your friends and followers.

ActBlue will automatically generate a wall post or tweet, which you can edit as normal. Furthermore, if you gave through a fundraising page with a thermometer, that thermometer will be appended to your wall post and your friends can join your fundraising effort with a single click:

Good Morning ACT BLUE community. I would like to take a minute to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Ray Medeiros and I am a candidate for Massachusetts state representative in the 9th Bristol District.
I do not have a long history in politics, mainly because I am not a career politician. I am the chairman of the democratic party in my town of Dartmouth,MA, town meeting member,and member of the alternative energy committee. In the private sector I am a licensed electrician by trade and after 5 years of continued higher education I have been exposed to the inner working of small business andworked along side the employees in the field.
The reason I made the choice to run for political office here in Massachusetts is, I am fed up with the voice of the working person not having that voice in Boston. Althouh the state house has a healthy Democratic majority, even some of those leaders have lost touch with the actual worker.
I have been studying economics and tax policy for about 2 years now and the one issue that stands out in my mind is the fact that so many people cater to big business, whether it may be through tax incentives or tax breaks for these corporations. The middle class is losing ground faster and faster everyday. Corporations and executives are making money hand over fist, they do not feel the effects of this recession. I am asking ACTBLUE to please help get my message out. Let’s fight for the people who need a comeback. Families are struggling, small businesses are hurting. Let’s fight together. Government is here to ensure a level playing field, not to get in the way of prosperity, but to set the rules of the game and enforce the the rules so that everyone has a shot at success.
