That’s great, but you might be missing out.
Let us explain.
Back in the days when the news feed was called a wall and we only had 29 friends each, keeping up to date with posts was a doddle. Now that we have on average 190 friends, are members of numerous groups, and have clicked ‘Like’ on everything from ‘Watching TV’ (7.7m likes) to ‘Eating porridge that’s just right after a hard day of being a bear’ (23 likes) our news feeds are now swamped with new… er… news. According to techcrunch.com your average facebook post only reaches 12% of your friends.
What this means is that the Liverpool Acoustic posts more often than not get swallowed up in a deluge of youtube videos, LOL Cats, and blurry photos from last night’s party.
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded by Graham Holland in April 2008 as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
