Facebook Online CasinosPosted on: February 21st, 2012 8:46 am | By: Jeremy Schrute
It seems that everyone is one Facebook now. Heck, even Gambling Review is on Facebook (so look us up). It’s gotten to the point that someone saying they’re not on Facebook is the new someone saying that they don’t own a TV. You don’t believe them and think they’re a jerk for trying to sound superior.
The online gambling industry was admittedly a little slow to jump on the Facebook bandwagon. The industry seemed to be waiting out, seeing if it was a fad that would soon end, like most social networking websites. With over 750 million users and counting, it seems that Facebook will be around for quite some time. In fact, it’s gotten to the point that Facebook is so popular because it’s so popular. In other words, people are on there not because of its great features, but because all of their friends are on it.
And now you can count online casinos among the user profiles. If you have a favorite online casino or several that you visit, searching for their name on www.facebook.com should reveal a fan page that you can “like.” But why should you like a casino’s page? It’s a legitimate question. While using Facebook to interact with all of your friends, why would you also want to follow an online casino? The reason is because it can be beneficial to you.
Online casinos use Facebook to interact with their customers, giving you another point of contact if you have an issue, want to make a suggestion, or just want to talk about their games or software. Through status updates, the casinos will also notify you when they launch a new game, start a new promotion, have a great tournament, or do anything else you want to know about. Sometimes they will even have exclusive bonuses only for those that are fans of their Facebook page. If you are a frequent customer, befriending them on Facebook can be beneficial.
