Social-able: Green Acres Market goes doggone crazy on Facebook

Each week Natural Foods Merchandiser shares how natural products retailers and others use social media in its Social-able column. This week we check out the canines of Green Acres Market's Dog Days of Summer event.

Green Acres Market in Kansas City proves natural foods markets don't need to stick to food on Facebook. The market celebrated the dog days of summer during its annual event and then shared pictures a plenty.

The takeaway: Have fun; share lots of images from your events; and remember, dogs seem to rule social media.

Photos fill Green Acres Market's Facebook page. But the Kansas City market let it go to the dogs (in a great way) recently when it posted 35 pictures of its Dog Days of Summer event.

The social media platform offers a great way to celebrate the event and draw participants to the natural market's Facebook page to see if their four-legged friend made the gallery.

And in the age of photo sharing, you can never go wrong with a dog (or his feline friends).
