Beer and Social Networking

CAMRA Liverpool facebook pageWhen CAMRA first started, social networking involved a group of people getting together in a pub. However, with the invention of the internet and more recently ‘myspace’, ‘facebook’ and ‘twitter’, social networking has taken on a whole new meaning.

We do have Merseyale which keeps you up to date with news and campaigns. There is also the internet on which you can find our own branch’s web pages, almost every brewery and a large number of pubs. However, keeping in touch with what’s happening, often involves checking out lots of web pages individually. Often you can sign up to email updates, but then your inbox quickly becomes full. Wouldn’t it be good to have a site that allows you to get all the information you need in one place? Updates from your favourite breweries, event details from your favourite pubs, news of CAMRA events.

Well, now with ‘Facebook’ this is possible.

Once you have a Facebook account a whole new community will open up to you. One page worth joining, or 'liking' is ‘CAMRA Liverpool and District’. This will keep you up to date with events, such as the next branch get together, pub crawls etc. You can indicate your attendance (or non-attendance), upload photos and discuss the event. You can also share any news you have. There are also links to other Facebook pages that might be of interest, mainly local pubs and breweries. Join their pages and again you will be kept up to date with news and events.

To keep in touch with national campaigns there is the CAMRA page

So PLEASE 'like' us to keep in touch with what’s happening. To find and join any of these pages on facebook just click on the name of the page, shown above in bold. Then, depending on the type of group or organisation, you can either click ‘join’ ‘like’ or ‘add as friend’.

And unlike ‘friends,’ events and organisations that use ‘join’ or ‘like’ CANNOT see any of your personal information.
