2009 – Ongoing
Gadv.com is a fan-site for the amusement park Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. It has been around for many years and has been through multiple changes in management. My involvement began around 2009 when I became a forum moderator and began contributing to the web design and social media accounts. I am currently one of two administrators and I handle mostly all the site operations such as development, event planning, and social media management.
Developing Park Changelog
I stepped onto Gadv.com’s staff around the time that Facebook was exploding. Starting with only a few likes, I grew our Facebook page to almost 1,400 likes. Our Twitter account also reached over 500 followers. I achieved this reach through my dedication to making interesting posts and promoting the Gadv.com brand. Some of our posts have had organic reaches of over 5,000 users.
Online Day is an annual event we host at the park. Read more about it here.
Forums are rapidly declining in popularity, and we have definitely seen a drop in activity. To compete with growing platforms, such as Facebook groups, we want to create a new environment for people to use. Ideally, it will serve the purpose of a forum, but with the ease of Facebook. This is a huge undertaking, but we hope that one day the idea can come to fruition.← Return to Projects
