I Love Cape Town Facebook page is South Africa’s third biggest
The I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page, which has more than 118 000 fans, is now South Africa’s third most popular, behind the Springboks and Gary the ToothFairy (aka local comedian Bevan Cullinan).
This is according to Memeburn, a company that specialises in website analysis. A blog posted on the Memeburn website today, written by Alistair Fairweather, listed the 10 most popular Facebook pages in the country.
Fairweather wrote of the I ♥ Cape Town page: “South Africa’s most beloved city was bound to make an appearance somewhere in our list. The fact that half the fans are probably German is irrelevant. Cape Town Tourism deserves a big pat on the back for this one.”
The page has become a place for Cape Town residents and visitors to share their photos, experiences and opinions. It is also a great place for visitors to get local advice about where to go and what to do in the Mother City.
I ♥ Cape Town has up to twice as many fans as some of the pages in the bottom half of the top 10.
Other groups that made the top 10 are Die Antwoord, Bafana Bafana Supporters, Jack Parrow, Huisgenoot, The Blue Bulls, The Power of 5FM and Steve Hofmeyr.
You too can become a fan of I ♥ Cape Town on Facebook.
