The Walking Dead Pays Tribute To The Social Network

By: Chris Crum - September 5, 2012

The Internet has been a tremendous promotional tool for AMC’s The Walking Dead, and Facebook, in particular, has helped keep fans engaged and hungry for the next season.

Last month, AMC released a social The Walking Dead Facebook game, as one example of this engagement in practice. Now, the show has reached ten million Facebook fans. That’s a sixth of the fans rapper Eminem has, and he’s been around for like 15 years. Not bad after just two seasons on television.

“Thank you to all our amazing fans for helping us reach this awesome milestone!” The Walking Dead says in a status update, sharing the following image, paying homage to The Social Network:
