Hello Rodrigo,

on Bulgarian Wikipedia we put a text asking readers to like our Facebook
page, our Twitter and Google+ accounts, as well to visit our blog [1]. The
Facebook likes went up from 1923 to 5381 in a month, 126 people followed us
on Twitter (virtually nobody did it before that), 123 people followed us on
Google+ and the reader numbers on our blog went significantly up (I don't
have the data right now). Nobody in the community objected to this and we
would probably do it again some day. We decided to remove it after a month,
because we saw that the number of new likes declined over time.

Best regards,
Nikola (User:Лорд Бъмбъри
