20142014 was a big year for us, on social media! We nearly doubled our followers on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google + and Twitter, but more importantly, we’ve gotten to connect with a lot of really interesting people who have become big Weathermatic supporters (“Brand advocates”, in Marketing lingo.)

Looking back at our top 10 social media shares of the year, we’re happy to see that the stories our followers liked best fit perfectly into our two primary focuses: technology and the global water crisis. And, while we naturally love talking about ourselves, only five of our top 10 stories are about us or written by us. Balance is a beautiful thing, right?
