Look for the #Bacon Hashtag!Written by Lillian Tram on November 20th, 2015
Part One – Bacon and Facebook
Those of us who love bacon are quite passionate about this delicious food group. Yes, in my mind bacon is a stand alone food group and I am sure there are others who agree! After all, there are whole blogs, books and even Facebook groups dedicated to glorious bacon. There’s no reason for you to sit there, staring at the computer while you admire bacon all by your lonesome.
Finally, the world understands #bacon
In this article, you will find a generous list of places bacon lovers can now assimilate and share stories, tips and advice surrounding their love of this previously unappreciated meaty goodness on Facebook. I’m sure you noticed the hashtag I’ve placed in front of the word bacon, above. (No, it’s really not a pound sign anymore.) Most of you are probably familiar with what a hashtag is but to be sure, I will explain it now.
Hashtags are used as a type of labeling process to help users find specific content on social media sites. What does this mean to you? Well, if you’re a #bacon fanatic, you can find all your new best buddies with the greatest of ease. (Smile) No, seriously. There are millions of people who adore bacon as much as you… or almost as much. After all, you’re reading an entire article about bacon on a blog about bacon founded by a young lady born in the year of the pig …it’s safe to say you’ve got it bad for bacon.
#bacon on Facebook
So, first off let’s start by saying there’s help out there if the bacon addiction takes over your life and you start to feel like you’re drowning in bacon grease. Bacon Eater’s Anonymous is an online community founded on Facebook for the sole purpose of coming together and sharing their passion for bacon.
Next on my Facebook search for the most amazing communities with bacon as the star of the show is Bacon Revolution. On the Facebook page, founders share bacon memes and recipes as well as other bacon inspired communications. The page offers a promise that you can be a part of the epic revolution – Viva La Bacon!!
Bacon Today is another online community and their Facebook gathering is currently at a staggering 56,924 people and that number is still growing! You’ll find all sorts of interesting things to read such as today’s post on making bacon strip ornaments – what?! Oh goodness! Anyway, there’s no shortage of people ready to talk about all things bacon!
Sit up in your chair now and stop drooling on the keyboard. There’s another Facebook page for those who just cannot get enough bacon – ever! Visit Baconaholics to meet some of your own kind and enjoy partaking in conversation surrounding your greatest passion. I stopped in for a visit today myself and when I finish here, I’m heading back to check out a recipe collection they posted: Best Bacon and Pumpkin Recipes …sounds yummy! (If I find some good ones, I’ll be sure to share!)
How often do you say I love bacon? Well, if those words pass your lips as much as the delicious pig inspired man candy (aka bacon), you should check out the Facebook page named I Love Bacon and kick it with more that 12,000 other bacon lovers. They’re currently designing a bacon t-shirt for the group and you can help choose the best design. Sounds fun, huh!
Bacon is Awesome, right? I know I already said that… but this time it’s the name of a popular bacon themed Facebook group. Bacon is Awesome has more than 11K people and the number is climbing quickly. Bacon lovers are serious about their addiction and they aren’t ashamed to show their affection for this delectable breakfast food …not that they only eat bacon for breakfast. (We all know better than that.)
Are you enjoying your trip around the world? The World of Bacon, that is. I stopped by just this morning and found an adorable meme with Marty McFly and Doc (you recognize the names, right?) If you’re perusing Facebook on our bacon journey, I am sure you will see it and know exactly who I’m talkin’ about. I even shared the meme for our peeps to see and enjoy.
I like helping others find success in their endeavors almost as much as I like bacon. This next Facebook site is an up-and-coming bacon inspired online community with only 172 member to date, but with a name like Happy Bacon, you know they’re destined for greatness. I clicked the LIKE button so now that number is 173 – whoa! See? I told you they’re not gonna stay small for long!
Born in 1971 (year of the pig …yep yep), I am a sucker for 80’s tunes so the next community celebrating their love of bacon instantly caught my eye. Don’t Go Bacon My Heart (I couldn’t if I tried) is another small community of about 170 members but with a catchy name like that and such a popular food as their inspiration, this crew is sure to gain in numbers very quickly.
This next one is a group rather than a dedicated page so you will have to click the button that says “join group” if you want to be a part of the social circle called I Heart Bacon. I have already made my request to join so soon they’ll have 96 super dee duper awesome members! I have no idea what’s beyond those online doors but I will be sure to let you know – just keep watching our blog because the bacony madness never ends here!
For those of you who haven’t signed up for Facebook, I know you’re already filling out the online form for a profile to call your very own, thanks to all these great bacon inspired groups. Once you find Facebook and are ready to roam around, we hope you will stop and sit for a spell with us at the My Pig Me Up dedicated Facebook page.
