The Meteoric Rise of CopBlock, Why We’re Sad and Our New Look
Truthfully we have mixed feelings over CopBlocks rapid growth. 5 years of hard work by countless activists mean this site, fan page, and the message have all skyrocketed.
Check this out…
- Facebook fan page has almost 1.5 million likes.
- Over 28,000 CopBlock site pages in Google
- Over 26 million site pageviews
- Over 63,000 YouTube Channel subscribers
- Alexa Global Rank: 69,881 / US Rank: 11,874
- Compete Rank: 12,587
Yes this represents sacrifice, hard work, and activists risking their lives, going to trial and/or facing a trip to prison time-and-again.
But this growth also highlights the increasing problem of the blue line mafia, which is what makes us sad. More optimistically, maybe it shows society finally waking up to the problem? (tell us in the comments what your theory is)
New Website Look
Today we go live with a new look for CopBlock’s primary website. Pages should load more quickly, the mobile experience should be (much) better, and overall we hope this helps more effectively communicate our message, “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights”.
Thank you for spreading the message. Together we’re absolutely changing the direction the wind is blowing.
