Be careful what you wish for with social media by Ben Miller

There is a guy on Facebook who covers the “restaurant scene” for my hometown of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois.  He posts tidbits and “behind the scenes”pizza-278x300 information about some of my favorite places… and I never miss a post.  In fact, when I see he’s posted, I often go to his Facebook page and make sure I didn’t miss any when I wasn’t looking.

As of the time I’m writing this, he has almost 6,000 fans of his page, which is impressive considering there are around 100,000 people in this town.  Think about that. Six percent of the people in this town (and a handful of people who have moved away) want fun facts about local places to EAT.

So, a few weeks ago, he posted about a local pizza place that has 12 electric cars (our town is trying to be an “EV Town”) they use for delivery.

That’s cool, right?   A local pizza place that is being kind to the environment and forward thinking?  If that’s all the article talked about, people would have applauded.  But the posting was about how efficient those cars were during the winter versus the summer.
