SOCIAL FEED Border Watch Mount Gambier @kyraTBW firstname.lastname@example.org Social media has a dominant presence in society with people of all ages networking online. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are just a few popular social networking sites and applications built for online self expression. This weekly wrap will collate the most popular topics and images circulating the community’s social media circuit and I need your help. Send photographs, comments or tweets you would like to see here to email@example.com or tweet me @kyraTBW Mount Gambier’s favourite dancer MJ DANCE Studio’s SAM MALSEED has made an exciting debut on Network Ten’s So You Think You Can Dance live shows and sent social media sites into a frenzy. Sam currently has 7978 Instagram followers, 10,600 twitter followers and 3873 likes on his Facebook page, with numbers climbing daily. Spotted: Chris Lilley MOUNT Gambier’s NIKKI MANFRIN and MYLES PEDLAR ran into Australian television royalty CHRIS LILLEY in Melbourne. Chris Lilley is best known for creating, writing and starring in a number of popular television series, including We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High, Angry Boys and most recently Jam’ie: Private School Girl. Currently living in Melbourne for study, Nikki and Myles spotted Chris at a bar in Collingwood last week. Both are long-time fans of Chris and stopped for a chat and a photo. Thanks to plenty of votes, Sam survived the fi rst elimination and avoided having to “dance for his life” in the bottom six during Sunday night’s episode. Sam teamed up with contestant ZOEY BLACK for a deeply emotional contemporary routine and had both the judges and audience members in tears. A sea of supportive comments and posts from Mount Gambier locals continues to fl ood Facebook timelines whenever Sam takes to the stage, while fans from across the nation use the hashtag #SYTYCDAU on twitter to show their support. To keep Sam dancing call 1902 55 55 18 or SMS ‘Sam’ to 1977 10 10.
