Fal River online community set to grow with new social media platforms.
Fal River Cornwall is launching itself onto a series of social media platforms to help promote, market and celebrate Cornwall’s most popular visitor destination.
The move comes in anticipation of the new Fal River destination website which is due to launch early in 2012. Fal River Cornwall can now be found on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr in a bid to provide people with an innovative, engaging and dynamic way to experience the best of the Fal River online.
Fal River’s web and social media manager, Tommy Tonkins, said: ‘We love it here and through our new website and social media platforms we want to share everything about the area we love.
‘Communities, partnerships and knowledge sharing are at the heart of everything we do and we believe we’ll be able to use social media to boost the profile of Fal River Cornwall on a regional, national and international scale.
‘We’ll be sharing the area’s best bits and our personal recommendations in a fun, interesting and engaging way. Our aim is to provide visitors and locals alike with information, ideas and inspiration on how to make the most of their time enjoying Fal River Cornwall.’
Fal River Cornwall marketing manager, Toby Budd, says social media will become an essential resource to the area’s visitors and the local community.
‘Fal River Cornwall has amazing hotels, award winning restaurants and some of the country’s top attractions,’ he said. ‘Throw into this mix an area of outstanding natural beauty, a dazzling system of water ways, a sustainable transport network, two castles, six sub-tropical gardens, 160 miles of walking and cycling trails and more than 500 events including festivals, regattas and theatres then you have an area of the world that’s really special and worth sharing.’
Tommy added: ‘Creating a vibrant community is really important to us and we want to see as many people getting involved on social media as possible. If you have great photos, inspiring stories or a great event that’s coming up then please share them with us on social media.’
