10-4 Good Buddy Day

Thumper, Bambi movie

Source FM is starting a campaign that for just one day a year we only say nice things to each other on social media and that day is 10/04 2017 or 10-4 Good Buddy Day.

Sadly we don't always post friendly comments on social media. Even the best of us will have a snipe, or get into a row on a social media forum. Quite often those fights are  with people you will never meet. These fights are usually completely harmless; debates over the best football team, your favourite action figure etc etc etc.

Not all comments are harmless though. People of all ages and creeds have  used the wonders we have to upset and even cause suffering to others. Some have even taken their own lives over comments made on social media.

Source FM wants to change that and we know you do as well. We ask that for just one day you post nothing but positive comments across your usual media platforms. Don't get into aggressive debates, avoid political  rows, and steer clear of the trolls!

Share only good stories, positive pictures and quotes as well as ideas that have inspired you. No money, no work, no goals except to make the digital world a little brighter for one day. T'aint a bad idea is it?

We're calling this "10-4 Good Buddy Day". and plan to hold this on the 10th April, 2017.  10th of the 4th - get it?

10-4 is a call sign used by CB radio  enthusiasts and others to say "I acknowledge and understand what you said".  Its that simple. So, on the 10th April, from Midnight, to Midnight, let Thumper inspire your posts.
