1) Keep Nelson Weird: The brainchild of John Paolozzi, Tammy Everts, and Britz Robins, this page recognizes and celebrates the things that give Nelson its character, from funky downtown shops to pirate ships sinking off shore near Walmart, to the Sweetgrass Productions bus (pictured at left). Like count: almost 1,300.

2) Lost Kootenays: Creston’s Zac Odin launched this page in March dedicated primarily to images of the region from the 1950s to the ‘80s, although it has since expanded well beyond that. It gained thousands of followers practically overnight. Like count: over 9,000

3) Humans of Nelson: Ryan Oakley wanders Nelson with a digital camera asking people if he can take pictures of them. Along with each photo, he posts an anecdote or a few sentences of the conversation he had with them. Like count: over 2,000
