Awesome Testimonials, from Awesome People:

I asked the community what they liked about Shoutout Edmonton, and these are just some of the anonymous & identified answers that came in.


Thank you for all that you share, post and pass along. Running a page at this level is no easy task.

In the time I’ve ‘liked’ this page, you’ve promoted local charities, supported businesses, shared kind acts from all over the city, helped reunite lost and found wallets, pets and even human beings. This page is more than just a page. Lots of ‘feel goods’. Thank you, kind sir.

The Best thing is how this page is making Edmonton have a sense of community again.

— Rodney Cole, Edmonton area


Sense of community, 60% interesting posts,learning new things about the city, how helpful people are, the pictures/graphic artwork look nice. I don’t know if you filter extremely BS/rude/annoying comments but I don’t see many, people express themselves in a half decent manner, whether I agree with them or not

— Anonymous, Edmonton Area


I like it because its informative and you can ask question and get advise from the community.

The best thing in my opinion is the sense of community and the relevant news that I get.

— Jade Perrin, Edmonton Area


It is very informative. Many of the news I hear others talking about is posted right away, I’m staying more current with everything news, events and my community. It has also been a great place to ask questions. I just moved to a new area and asked a question about my community. I’ve also made new friends because of something someone else posted. I also find it uplifting. The positive shout outs are inspiring.

The positivity and the community feel that goes with it. It also allows people to share or comment without too much controversy or debating as it is monitored to remove the high negativity content. Good job

That so many people can come together to help say, find a lost pet… to give advice, to support someone.

I like the fact that I can find new places and new things to do in a city I have lived in or near all my life, because before I didn’t know where to go to get this such detailed information.

I really like that we have a place/forum to both ask questions or rant or give a compliment in an anonymous way.

The content. The constant updates on everything going on in the city.

— Anonymous, Edmonton area


Local issues, stories, and events that are going on in my city. Not going to lie, sometimes it amuses me to watch the internet get mad and fight 🙂

I really like to see when someone is asking for help that most people are stepping up and trying to offer assistance/advice.

— Anonymous, Edmonton area


I like Jody who gives everyone a chance to speak their mind and he is very respectful and helpful to fellow Edmontontonians.

The fact that its anonymous, and I can ask an honest question with good responses

— Anonymous, Edmonton area


I like the news updates a lot, and the random thank you’s or positive messages. Hell, even the rants are good most of the time, haha. If we didn’t voice some negative opinions things would never have a chance to change, right?
I haven’t found something I don’t like about this page.

Love the fact that anyone can voice their opinion (good or bad, or even just to vent) anonymously and for the most part get relative and informative feedback. 🙂

I love that it is totally anonymous the most. That I can send in things where no one knows my name. I like the positivity that it brings, but also really like the things that are “heads up” or concerns where it’s something I might not have thought of before.

Great idea. A person started this page for the people and NOT a corporation (ulterior motives). Used and accessed by many for an assortment of postings. Positive and informative mass media.
