Lithuania builds World's largest social media statue

In contrast to its historical heritage, Lithuania is looking to the future as Lithuania builds World’s largest social media statue this summer in the resort town of Druskininkai as the centrepiece of the new Like’able Lithuania campaign.

It will become an invitation to “LIKE” Lithuania itself, i.e. to see it, feel it, love it and tweet it. At the same time, the sculpture is a symbol of the internet generation’s lifestyle which includes a possibility to create, share and communicate in social networks. Any citizen of the world may become the co-owner of the sculpture and receive the certificate verifying this. All you need to do is to join the Like’able Lithuania campaign and everyone who gives a “LIKE” to Lithuania will receive a LIKE sculpture certificate verifying co-ownership. At the end of the summer, all European co-owners of the statue will have a chance to win a trip to Lithuania.

“Lithuania is known not only for basketball, the baroque Old Town of Vilnius or picturesque sand dunes. Here, you can ride a sleigh in the summer, have a walk in the oak grove right in the middle of the city, visit an amber bath, dance till dawn or relax in modern spas. Everyone will find things to LIKE here – the Like’able Lithuania project makes sure of it every day. We are happy that, from now on, we will be able to boast of the world`s largest sculpture dedicated to social networks,” says Dr Raimonda Balnienė, the Head of the State Department of Tourism under the Ministry of Economy.

This Lithuania builds World’s largest social media statue campaign is a large step forward for Lithuania communicating with the internet a favoured means of communication. The campaign is expected to involve about one million users by the end of the summer. Three months from the start of the campaign there are already 150,000 users involved.
