Tourism taps the power of social media to promote the Philippines

It’s nice to know that the new tourism secretary is tapping the power of social media to boost the country’s tourism campaign.

Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez said Facebook and twitter user, and blog owners can help promote the Philippines’ fascinating places and destinations all over the world.

“It helps that Filipinos love to travel. It will be our job to excite people to want to see our country. We have the best, most fascinating places to visit on earth,” he said in a press conference.

Aside from boosting local tourism, the new tourism campaign will help generate income and employment to Filipinos.

Now, if you own an account to any of the social media I’ve mentioned above, wouldn’t you want to be a part of the government tourism campaign and let your friends learn about the beauty of the Philippines?

Facebook, twitter, blogs are so powerful you don’t have to produce birthday party invitations to get friends and relatives to attend an important occasion. A post update is enough to promote your newly established or already flourishing business.
