How Social Networking Affects BingoMonday, 30 April 2012
Social media is taking the world by storm and you will notice that when you launch an online bingo site these days they will ask you to “like” this or “follow” that in a bid to create a social networking community. What are the advantages of this? Well first up it’s a great way for them to keep you up to date with all the latest bingo promotions and offers – so you don’t miss out on any bingo delights. You will see all the site has to offer on your Facebook or Twitter news feeds as soon as you log into your accounts.
Often bingo sites also involve social networking sites in their promotions – so you might find you have to post on their page as part of an action to earn points towards tickets in a bingo game or to be in with a chance of winning a prize. It’s a great way to get players to interact and communicate with each other and to get some community spirit going!
Often there is a cheeky little bonus fund incentive if you like Facebook fan pages – so you could find yourself with an extra couple of quid to spend on your favourite Facebook games simply by clicking a little “like” button. It would be extremely rare these days to find a successful bingo site that doesn’t have a Facebook or Twitter page – everyone is looking to go viral! There usually is a refer a friend scheme of some form on online gambling sites and before generally you could only do this by email invitation – now it is made so easy as you can simply invite Facebook friends and get even more bonuses!
You will also find that there are loads of games developers creating bingo games for Facebook. There are a whole heap of them out there at the moment such as Bingo Blitz, Bingo Bash and new an up and coming AvaTingo! Whatever kind of bingo game you like – you will not only find it when you are trawling those Google search engines but all over Facebook. You will even find that sites such as Beacon Bingo are also launching Facebook bingo games – and I’m sure it won’t be long before other bingo sites jump on the bandwagon.
There’s no doubt about it Facebook and Twitter are becoming extremely important in terms of getting players chatting about their sites and getting a lot of attention. So get Facebooking and Tweeting and keep up with all the latest social networking trends!
