Travel Company Joins Facebook

By: Derek Both

World - wide travel company Uniglobe Gemini travel have signed up to the increasingly popular social networking site Facebook. On the travel company's website people can share their holiday photos with the world, tell people where they've been and recommend places for other people to visit.

The account has been set up in a bid to reach those who love to travel and want to share their experiences with like - minded people. Anything that people want on the page will be there from photos, comments, travel tips and anything else that people can think of.

it is thought that this is the best to reach people nowadays as everyone seems to have an account with at least one social networking site. Students, people in full time work and those who are at home all day are thought to log on to these sites for hours on end. Many companies have started to realise the benefits of these sites as it's an easy way of reaching mass audiences in one place.

The reason behind the profile being set up is so that people can interact with other keen travellers and make friends with people all over the world. Once the page is more established and Uniglobe have more 'friends' it is hoped that people will use the page to share photos from all over the world and share stories that people are going to be interested in hearing about.

Facebook was originally intended for use by students at Harvard university as a way of getting to know other students on the campus. Gradually more and more universities were allowed to access the sites, then businesses and now anyone can join it. Something that was intended as a small university portal has now turned into one of the most popular websites in the world with 34 million registered users.

Facebook profiles have the potential to reach millions of users with an estimated 200,000 new people signing up to it every day. An incredible 60 billion pages are viewed by users every month who are interested to know what their friends, co - workers and people they haven't seen in years are up to.

There are many different reasons why Facebook has become so popular from the hundreds of applications you can download to the people you can contact who you never thought you would ever find again. The site has become such a phenomenon that it is now the sixth most trafficked site in the United States.
