I just launched a page Facebook - Little Bubbles Elsewhere. A page dedicated to this blog, distinct from that of my personal profile. Facebook, I got a taste for traveling and between two trips. It's really convenient to keep in touch with the people you meet on the way.
Before, during and after the trip
As I explained in my post Travelling solo, we do not stop making new encounters when we are elsewhere. And Facebook has become, for me, the preferred way to keep in touch with this new knowledge, that I will not necessarily have the opportunity to review "in real life" anytime soon.
What I appreciate is that the link thus maintained via FB is not too invasive. Without the need to send an e-mail, we can just go take a look at the profiles of each other, to see what people become. We take and give news (or not) without imposing. We can go to someone in particular or to everyone.
It is a way to prolong the trip too, or to travel by proxy, through the infos, links, photos, conversations, that others publish on their "wall" (or "bulletin board" to use the tasty term of the version French Canadian Facebook I use).
During my travels, the list of my friends FB grouped under the label "Travelers and divers" has continued to grow. I love going back to see them virtually, some of them send me information about destinations where I intend to go, help me to prepare the next trip ...
And then when I'm traveling, FB allows me to keep in touch with loved ones and friends who are far away. To share with them, in almost direct, my impressions.
That's it, my page Facebook - Little Bubbles Elsewhere is created. There is only to live it! I discover with amusement the terms chosen by FB to designate my new subscribers: "admirers", "followers", "fans" ...
It's a little sect, all that, anyway ...: lol:
But that does not stop you from becoming a fan! I will regularly post additional info to the blog, links related to travel, Asia, diving. The "followers" with an FB account will also be able to post their own links, photos and videos, give their comments, report their good plans, and everything and everything ...
