Facebook Page Facilitates Admiration of East Tennessee

Knox Facebook Page of the Month:

Growing Up in East Tennessee

If there's one thing Facebook is really good at, it's allowing people to engage in group admiration—but it's usually best when they're admiring something besides each other. In the case of Growing Up in East Tennessee, the self-titled topic of discussion is a fine one; the page is "dedicated to people who grew up or lived in East Tennessee to share pictures, stories, or memories of what you enjoy most of living in the greatest place on earth." Started just last month, the page already has over 14,000 followers who treat each other to fun photos of local landmarks and their attendant memories. If you ever feel doubtful about your home turf, this is a great place to find positive affirmation.
