    cruise dot and social media.

    As a little distraction I thought I would have a look at the other two main social media options that CD uses twitter and FB to see what is going on there as there is no activity on the forum by CD.

    twitter seems to have dried up as the last tweet was 18th of April.

    Thinking of going on a Mediterranean holiday next year? Santorini is no secret, nor does it ever fail to dazzle the crowds with its romantic setting and incredible history
    This is your guide to Santorini for 2021 & 2022…
    with a link to a 2016 report.

    there is also a link to this a bit earlier to a decent tailormade
    https://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-guid...erica-10jan20/


    FB is a lot more active and some good stuff, links to recent reviews, deals and a bit of self promotion with the positive consultant feedback.
    also some user activity not all good feedback but there are some interesting cruise related posts.

    they seem to be keen or referencing the cruisememes page which does have some funny stuff.

    definately more going on with FB than here so even if not a FB fan/member you may benefit from just reading.

    Although I use Facebook daily never ever thought of looking at Cruisedots Facebook page, probably because never realised they had one, but then must company’s do. The forum is the only cruise dot related site I have contact with.

    Have never used twitter.

    I am surprised this forum has lasted as long as it has, as most company’s now use Facebook and other forms of Social Media to promote their products.

            Couldn’t cope without it Bill.....It’s been great for calling home when abroad via 3/4G or In the States when WiFi is available. We also do our family Friday quiz on it too.

              Just teasing. My 13yo grandson lobbed it onto my phone. I said he was too young - he just looked at me and said 'it's essential Grampa - and free'

                WhatsApp is owned by Facebook. A backdoor into your data in my book.

                    Agree Bill, our 12 year old granddaughter put both of us on it when she created a family group.
