Best in Show: Facebook Finalists


Announcing the finalists for the

2016 Best in Show: Facebook Award…


facebook_titled_transparent_2013-10-22-1Facebook is a community all its own. Over the past few years it has transformed from a place for a personal profile to a real hub for discourse, conversation, and community. Who has the best Facebook Group or Page of anyone you know? They have balanced the tricky interface of Facebook and turned it into an opportunity to reach more people in a medium people are used to. They foster an environment that people want to “Like” and have a ton of interaction there every day. The leader of the group may have other sites – but he or she really exemplifies why Facebook can be used for good.

Hilarious Health Activist Finalists

Announcing the finalists for the

2016 Hilarious Health Activist Award…

hilarious_titled_transparent_2013-10-22-1Advocacy doesn’t have to be all business and raising awareness doesn’t have to be all work. The truly funny Health Activists among us really bring a lightness the online health community needs. They address serious subjects with humor – and we love them for it. They may be witty, sharp, dry, or just have a way to tell a story that is truly funny. Let’s celebrate their style and thank them for cracking us up when we need it most.
