*** 1 April 2012 - April Fools Day / Poisson d'Avril ***
Today, we have 860 friends on our Facebook Profile, as well as 860 fans on our Facebook Fan Page - what a coincidence!! Perfect timing for a double-prank on our Facebook friends and fans!
On our profile, we changed our 'date of birth'. More than 75 people sent their birthday wishes through!
On our fan page, we announced that Facebook was about to close our page for violating the site policies (a joke, bien sûr!). Approximately 100 fans commented, 'liked' or 'shared' our updates!
A very successful April Fools day, indeed!
Merci everyone for showing so much love! We also seize this opportunity to say un grand merci to our 1500+ followers on Facebook for your continuous support!
We hope that you are not going to hold a grudge against us (pas de rancoeur)!
