Urban Fold

Denver's Social Media Campaign to Celebrate the City

The Denver Community Planning and Development department unrolled a new social media campaign this week utilizing #favoriteplacedenver to celebrate the city's unique characteristics.

Residents are encouraged to discuss their favorite place, and why the like it so much, with only 140 characters or less. Through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, all sorts of results have started to flow in, according to Emilie Rusch of The Denver Post. So far, "the hustle and bustle of the 16th Street Mall, the twinkly lights of Larimer Square at night, the sights and sounds of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the lush, green oasis of Denver Botanic Gardens" have all been posted.

My Favorite Place in Denver's goal, per the city website, is "to kick-start a wide-open Denver love fest to foster civic pride and learn from each other how we can make our beloved city even better."

The campaign will continue through September, with a report sharing trends and overall results.
