Katie Cassidy fan mobilizes social media campaign to save Melrose Place.
In the weeks following the season finale of Melrose Place, I’ve seen fans use all forms of social media with a determination to maintain buzz for the show so the CW Network will take note and renew it in the eleventh hour. Melrosers have taken to Twitter and Facebook to exchange tips on how to keep Melrose visible, with good reason. The CW Network’s presentation of its Fall lineup to the TV media is coming up in May, so efforts to save the show must build to a crescendo now. I’m doing my part, but I have to admit that I’m very impressed by the passion of one particular fan, whose devotion to Our Miss Ella, Katie Cassidy, is surely known by anyone with a Twitter account: KCassidyFans. This devoted Katie follower has wowed me with an amazing knowledge of social media, teaching me a few new tricks in the process. Indeed, I’ve been using the hashtag #SOSMelrosePlace and added a Melrose twibbon to my Twitter avatar at KCassidyFans’ urging. Hopefully, it has contributed to the growing clamor for a Melrose renewal. The latest phase of KCassidyFan’s campaign involves a tip sheet of ways to make your digital voice heard in support of the show. Check it out at: http://teamkatie.insanejournal.com/14055.html. Together, we can make a difference!
