It was co-workers at one of the Earls restaraunts that recognized Kyle Woods on Shoutout Edmonton…and they told him to phone home…..Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Without Shoutout Edmonton, we possibly couldn’t have found Kyle Woods as quickly as we did!!!!!! Over 4,100 shares and 3.5 days… (May 22nd, 2015)

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

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.

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 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.
