Happy Movember from MOmarketed

Greetings, MoBros and MoSistas! Forget about November… it’s all about Movember.

Contrary to what most people think, Movember is more than just a silly excuse to grow facial hair:

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

In other words, it’s a great month to raise awareness for men’s health and to have fun while doing so. The growing popularity of Movember wouldn’t be possible without sharing via social media. Check out these stats from last year by Radian 6:

– Terms that increased in November include: “getting checked”, “make an appointment” and “see a doctor”
– Mentions of “MoBros” on social media = nearly 18,000
– Mentions of prostate cancer has increased month to month since August

It’s expected that 1.6 million men will raise over $120 million this Movember. While traditional social networks are great for spreading the word about worthy causes, this article on TechCruch also explores the world of social networking for collaborative research. How great is it for scientists and researchers to share their findings and work on a more sophisticated social networking? Now this is a step in the right direction that we can all get behind.

One thought on “Happy Movember from MOmarketed”

  1. This is an important topic. Men, including myself, often don’t go to the doctor enough. It’s uncomfortable, and since we often judge things by if they work or not, as long as we can work nothing needs to be fixed. I often look at my doctors long list of checkups like I look at a car manufacturers long list recommendations, just a system to nickle and dime people who don’t know better. But I have to break out of that mentality , but it’s still a good idea to get second opinions in both cases.
