Created mid-March 2010, the new Facebook page has caught on quickly. Within its first two weeks, 200+ fans chose to sign up for updates from the staff of FTLOP and the fan base continues to grow slowly but surely. Our mission is to provide one daily update; it is not to inundate our fans with never ending barrages of information, but instead to deliver worthy and diverse content that they will find attention-grabbing, fun and/or educational.
Mixing it up between offering tasting notes, delivering breaking news, mentioning special offerings, announcing tastings held around the world, creating interactive topics of discussion and more … the new Facebook page of FOR THE LOVE OF PORT promises its fans, the content will never be boring!
This is not meant to replace Roy’s Blog on the FTLOP homepage, nor take away from any of the synergy on our successful Forum. We view this as an adjunct and a great way to reach out to our fans who embrace one of the hottest areas in all of social media. As things progress it is our hope that fans will become more active and start their own topics, share photos, or discuss any facet of Port, Madeira or the wines of Portugal, with a strong emphasis on the non-fortified wine of the Douro Valley (of course). We hope you will stop by and join us, as it’s really as simple as just clicking here: Become a Fan of our Facebook Page!
