Jerry Seinfeld recently joined Facebook and he’s finally starting to see what all the fuss is about. Yesterday, he posted a link to the season five premiere of his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” featuring Kevin Hart and his 530,000 followers helped get the episode 335,000 likes and more than 10,000 shares. Ultimately, it was seen by more than 12 million people.
So, Seinfeld decided to write Mark Zuckerberg a note to thank him personally for the traffic:
For much of the day, “Jerry Seinfeld” has been trending on Facebook’s news feed, with the top link going directly to the “Comedians in Cars” website where you can watch the new episode. It’s a powerful thing, and Seinfeld gets it now.
