This is an update to my previous post about potholes. *That was strange to write*
Potholes in Columbus have gone social, as in social media. Just about everyone of note has a Facebook page or Twitter account and our infamous potholes are no different. It's not enough to have the option to report them via the city services line 3-1-1, Columbus residents now have the option to send pothole warnings to city officials via Twitter at @Rpt_CbusPothole or by posting on the "Report Columbus Potholes" Facebook page.
So far, the Facebook page has over 300 'likes' and 58 followers on Twitter. It's not exactly Charlie Sheen numbers, but not bad for destructive holes in asphalt. Let's just hope everyone will wait until they are off the road to tweet "Freakin' pothole at __ & ___ Road!"
So far, the city has filled over 6,403 potholes since Monday.
What do you think about the city's efforts? Will social media save our streets?
