Be Our (Virtual) Friend and Help Save Seals

Published by PETA.

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:


  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.


  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.


  1. Follow @PETA. 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!
