Nice one, Greenpeace.

International has set a world record for acquiring the most number of comments for one of its pages in in just 24 hours.

“Congratulations Everybody! You’re all world record holders now,” is the message that greeted the group’s members and subscribers, as the team sent them email blasts. The message also informed the they are aiming to set a world record of posting more than 80, 000 comments in at least 11 different languages on the group’s “Facebook Unfriend Coal page.”

In a report by the Digital Journal, Greenpeace was already getting 50,000 comments in just 24 hours.

In an email announcement from the environmental group, the target was met just 12 hours after the appeal for posting comments on the page was sent to its members. The group also has been told that an official from the Guinness World Records in London will verify the world record.

Meanwhile, the purpose of the Unfriend Coal page was to amass and express support for renewable energy instead of coal and nuclear power by asking Facebook to ‘unfriend’ coal. The page is part of Greenpeace’s campaign to get Facebook green and stop running its data centers on coal. “Greenpeace expects Facebook to become coal-free by the year 2021, committing to cent percent renewable energy,” the Digital Journal reports.
