When Michelle Boley of Romney clicked the “like” button on the Hampshire Review’s Facebook page Saturday, she became the 12,000th person to like the paper.

“That’s a milestone worth celebrating,” Senior Editor Jim King said.

The Review’s 12,000 likes are the most of any weekly paper in West Virginia, except the Preston News and Journal, which is a part of the larger WVNews network.

“Those likes mean a lot,” King said. “We don’t make a dime off Facebook, but we put a lot of effort into the platform to stay connected with people who live in and care about Hampshire County.”

The paper added more than 700 likes to the page since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The efforts of our staff — Nick Carroll in particular — show in those numbers,” King said. “We have worked hard to keep people here on top of the information that will keep them safe.”
