Burnaby, BC (Vocus) June 29, 2010
Tourism Burnaby has joined the growing BC Social media network with the launch of Burnaby Public, Tourism Burnaby's hub for all its social media initiatives.
“With our location just 15 minutes outside downtown Vancouver by rapid transit, Burnaby has always been easily accessible by its 11 SkyTrain stations spread throughout the city. Connecting with Burnaby online is now just as easy with Burnaby Public, “states Matthew Coyne, Executive Director, Tourism Burnaby.
Burnaby Public acts as an online community for visitors to connect with Tourism Burnaby’s various social media platforms stemming from one landing page. Users can stay up-to-date with news, contests and upcoming events through the Burnaby Facebook page or Burnaby Twitter site. Burnaby, British Columbia video footage and photos can be shared through Flickr and YouTube, providing an outlet of communication between both Tourism Burnaby and members of the sites.
While Tourism Burnaby has previously engaged and connected with users through the above social media networks, with the launch of Burnaby Public, Tourism Burnaby is also introducing 11Stations, its new blog. 11Stations features local bloggers who explore all Burnaby has to offer from annual events including the Hats off Day and the Burnaby Blues + Roots Festival to lesser known secrets of Burnaby such as locally-owned restaurants and boutique shopping.
By creating a central social networking hub for Tourism Burnaby’s social media and blog, both visitors and residents will be able to discover all of Burnaby’s hidden gems as well as share their own from small neighborhood eateries to BC’s largest shopping mall.
