Thank You, 2 Million Facebook Fans
Dear Photoshop Facebook Fans,
I never imagined I’d be writing this letter congratulating YOU, our Photoshop Facebook Fans, for helping us reach the 2 Million Fan mark just five months after crossing one million. But, thanks to your dedication and passion for Photoshop, we have reached this new milestone, way ahead of schedule.
The past five months have been eventful on the Photoshop team. In February, we celebrated Photoshop’s 21st birthday, last week we put the finishing touches on a new SDK and three tablet applications, all while continuing to research and innovate the core Photoshop product you use every day. And now it’s time to celebrate YOU, our Photoshop Facebook Fans!
We take your feedback seriously. We read each and every one of your comments, and are working hard to integrate your feedback directly into Photoshop. We appreciate the personal connection we’ve formed with all of you and are thrilled that you’re using our social channels as a place to get to know each other better – from meeting Gavin Hoey in person, the winner of our Next Photoshop Evangelist contest, to challenging our engineers to add background save (and many other features!) to a future version of Photoshop — the top requested feature from you, our Fans. So, let your friends know that they too can make an impact by joining our Facebook page.
This week is about YOU, our Photoshop Facebook Fans. To kick off the week and thank you for the creativity and magic you bring to our lives every day, some members of the Photoshop team put together a short video.
Check back often this week. We’re throwing a couple contests, and giving away lots of prizes. To thank you for your passion, dedication and participation, today we are giving away 50 iTunes gift certificates – to Fans selected at random – so you can be the first to download our new Photoshop iPad apps when they become available in May 2011. Simply answer this question in the comments section below: “What do you enjoy most about being a Photoshop Facebook Fan?”
Thanks for following us, providing your feedback, sharing your work and most of all, keeping the team inspired!
Happy 2 Millionth Fan Week!!
Product Management Director, Digital Imaging
