Look No Further Than Your Screen

I started the Patti Loves Bing Facebook page and this blog, as a means of expressing my obsession with everything Binghamton rather than to solely promote events and/or local businesses.  That being said, I am devoting this post to the promotion of the many Facebook pages that promote events and businesses on a daily basis. 

Some of the people behind these pages are faceless. Then there are others very much in the public eye. Either way, their undying love for the area is not to be taken lightly.  So, the next time you feel that urge to post that there is nothing going on in Binghamton or that there are no places to shop except Walmart or Target; remember all you need to do is check these pages out on your laptop, tablet or smartphone. 

Several of the pages worth following are: Greater Binghamton TodayBinghamton Business ReviewProud of Upstate New York and 365 Binghamton.  These are far from being the only pages out there.  Any that I have missed in highlighting is due more to lack of space on this post than anything else.  However, there are two I would like to give a big shout out to. (Plus it gives me a chance to test the Facebook embedded post feature; forgive me the momentary lapse into geekiness.)

BingSpot is clearly the leader with over 9,600 followers.  Their founders have an uncanny sense of not only promoting every major Binghamton event; but capturing each event through the lens of their cameras.

What's Goin' On Binghamton? is another page worth following.  They not only promote local area events and business; but also make full use of their own YouTube channel and have a presence on LinkedIn.
