Frontierville Post Breaks Guinness World Record.
Tracey Hodgson, a FrontierVille community group administrator, has managed to break the Guinness world record for the amount of comments received on a single Facebook post. The post received over 1,001,600 comments and this achievement is credited largely to four of the 107 FrontierVille fans that commented and who must have spent a great deal of time on this project. Many of the initial commenters left the group due to the constant notifications but a hard core stuck at it, you have to admire them for their persistence.
Tracey became interested in the game after watching her daughter playing it and then became an administrator for the games community groups, she decided to set the record to show the strength of the community when they all work together.
“I began to play myself, and then got involved in helping with the game’s community groups as an administrator,” she told Guinness. “My friend Nattie Murphy saw the previous record and suggested I try to break it — it sounded like a great idea for our group to show what we are capable of when we work together”
“It feels fantastic to have been able to break the world record for our community – while I don’t actually play Frontierville anymore, I’ve met some great people through playing it and love to be able to help them enjoy the game still”.
The post reads as follows:
“hi all!!! , hope everyone is ok today , this is ‘the one’, please talk about anything you like here, whatever you want to talk about, change topic whenever you like also, just have fun , . so how are you all today?( please someone speak quick or i’ll have no nails left!!!) x x x.”
It is clear that this record attempt was pre-planned as the name of the group concerned is – Ffgpioneers/gwr/attempt.
The record attempt has more than doubled the previous record holders’ tally of 389,141, featured on the Facebook page for Italian philosopher Roberto Esposito in response to a post made on 10 January 2011.
