Be Our (Virtual) Friend and Help Save Seals

It seems like everyone and their grandma (literally) is getting into social networking. Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are all the rage nowadays, so you know that PETA is all over it. As long as you’re scanning your tweets on Twitter and poking friends on Facebook, why don’t you check out what PETA is up to as well?

At the moment, we’re fighting to end the Canadian seal slaughter. Here are a few easy tips for spreading the word about the seal slaughter through your social network:

Facebook

  1. Become a fan of PETA’s Facebook page. This takes two seconds, tops, and lets all your friends know that you’re fighting the seal slaughter. You can opt to get daily announcements on new ways to get active and check our status updates throughout the day.
  2. Sign petitions and join causes. Facebook makes it easy to take action with “Causes and Petitions” that you can sign with a click, post on your wall, and forward to all your friends in less than a minute. Check out this petition to help stop the Canadian seal slaughter.

MySpace

  1. Add PETA as a MySpace friend. You can read our blogs and bulletins, watch videos, leave comments, and way more. PETA’s MySpace page is your all-in-one center for staying up-to-date on animal rights.
  2. Get interactive. PETA’s MySpace page has all sorts of banners, badges, and videos to embed, making it easy for you to personalize your own page and voice your support for baby seals. We even have a brand new MySpace wrapper, so if you can copy and paste, you can give your profile a pro-seal makeover.

Twitter

  1. Follow @OfficialPETA. By following PETA on Twitter, you can get the latest updates on the seal slaughter battle and chat with our lovely and knowledgeable Twitter rep (yours truly).
  2. Tweet for seals. You could RT (retweet) our tweets, let your friends know that they can follow us, or even send a tweet to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper (@pmharper) to ask him to stop the seal slaughter.

Now that you’re equipped to fight the social-networking war against the seal slaughter, I’ll see you on the field!

    I am already a friend of PETA on Facebook and am recruiting all my friends to sign the petition I have no tolerance for people who wear fur. I actually work with someone from Canada wonder how she feels about this. I wish more people would get involved in putting a stop to animal abuse. So many people just look the other way instead of taking a stand. Bravo PETA!

    anderson Besides what Carla suggested get thyself to a pet loss forum where you’ll find other people just like yourself who are grieving the loss of their animal companions. My baby girl Nicole died on Dec.7th and I’m still grieving for her. I go to lightning strike pet loss. Great forum with moms and dads of furbabies who understand what you’re going through.

    anderson get off your ol’ butt just kidding by the way and go to your nearest animal shelter!! The City Pound if you’re looking for a companion canine is a good place to start. You won’t be disappointed!! I promise!! The BEST animals come from shelters and you’ll feel good too!!

  • Teresa says:

    I think this is so totally disgusting. I have no tolerence for any woman or man that wears fur of any kind
