#First44 Day 10: Facebook Likes Aplenty
Mitchell Leads Increase in Social Media Attention
Mitchell was named head coach of the North Texas women's basketball team on April 9, 2015. Between moving back to Denton, getting to know the team and beginning to operate the Mean Green program, Mitchell will be very busy early on in her tenure. We want to give fans an in-depth look at her #First44 days on the job in the form of a 44-part series that will run from April 10-May 23.
Jalie Mitchell woke up Sunday morning thinking about ways to get more people involved and interested in North Texas women's basketball. So she invited all of her Facebook friends to "like" the Mean Green page and the total number of fans jumped from 631 to 986; a 56-percent increase in one day.
"More than 350 'likes' later, I think we are on our way to more fans, more involvement and more support," she said. "This is a place that has always been special to me and I would like for others to feel the same. Social media is the thing. I share things I love and do on social media, so starting there was the obvious choice."
On the official North Texas women's basketball Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, fans can find unparalleled updates from the team. Whether it be articles, recaps, graphics or live-tweets during games, social media is an outstanding way of following all things Mean Green. Fans can also follow Mitchell on Twitter and Instagram.
