UPDATE: Since we hit 50,000 so fast, let’s set the bar higher and go for 100,000 comments in 24 hours. The clock is ticking click here to add your comment to the Greenpeace Facebook World Record now!
Eleven hours into our attempt, tens of thousands of Facebook users around the world established a Guinness World Record for the most comments to a Facebook post in 24 hours.
Facebook users joined with Greenpeace to call on the social networking giant to start powering its services with renewable energy instead of coal and nuclear power.
“In places as diverse as Cairo and Madison, Wisconsin, Facebook is helping to foster activism and foment reform,” Greenpeace Campaigner Casey Harrell said. “This world record shows that people want Facebook to lead a new energy revolution by committing to phase out coal and power its transformative services with clean, safe renewable energy.”
