TV Ad for Facebook to Unfriend Coal
by Eoin Dubsky
March 30, 2011
Have you seen our new TV ad message to Facebook? We made it using hundreds of photos which supporters posted on our Facebook Unfriend Coal page. Watch the video below, and share it with your friends!
This week, it will run on TV in Facebook’s home town in California, where hundreds of Facebook staff can see our demand for change.
Just as Facebook has revolutionised the way the world communicates, so it can revolutionise the IT sector’s current reliance on coal. Facebook’s reputation for innovation means that wherever it goes, other IT companies will follow. See our PDF backgrounder about the campaign and Facebook’s energy choices.
With Facebook’s two new massive new data centres due to be switched on soon, each of which uses enough power to light up tens of thousands of homes, there’s never been a better time for Facebook to unfriend coal and choose the clean, safe, renewable energy future.
Countdown to Earth Day, April 22:
We’ve challenged Facebook to pledge to go green by Earth Day. With less than 25 days to go, will Facebook step up? To keep the pressure on, we need your help to make sure that as many people as possible watch and share this video.
Got a blog or website?
If you have a blog or website, you could help by linking to the Facebook TV Ad video with the link text just as I have done in this sentence. Please use “Facebook TV Ad” as the link text, in a sentence about Facebook’s coal problem.
If enough websites participate, our video will soon be the first thing that people find when searching the web for, well, a Facebook TV ad.
