This is a great article. I am coming up with an interesting marketing plan for when our Inn goes up and how we really got to target locally especially on a social media point of view to kind of become an icon in the small city. I have a feeling that a city connected through your bb or Inn with facebook allows it much easier for them to recommend their friends and family when coming in to visit. After a certain amount of likes though, I feel a business becomes part of the community and bringing in customers from all sorts of backgrounds through social media will be the exciting part.

I'm leaving next week for a 2 week trip to Ireland. One of the places we're staying is at a b&b that had followed me on Pinterest, then on FB. Of course, I checked him out too. He has almost 6,000 likes on his FB page and he's in a teeny tiny town! I'm hoping to pick his brain a little to see what his magic is.

Good article, I find that the popularity in mobile devices also will help to continue this trend well into the future.  Twitter and Facebook is now common jargon and for gen x and gen y, almost the standard way to communicate, so it is very important to be a continuing part of that world.  I feel those two platforms stacked with the rise of Pinterest could have a huge impact on the B&B industry, and attract a great amount of first time B&B guests.
