CNN Appearance Skyrockets Facebook Support for Military General

An appearance on CNN’s State of the Union with John King had a surprising impact on U.S. General Ray Odierno’s Facebook page.
Only seven hours after telling King that he was “excited about using the site to get the word out about what American troops are accomplishing,” Odierno’s supporters on the social network climbed from 70 to 900.
FBDC just checked and the Gen’s number of supporters are teetering right below 3,000.
