Ever since travel destinations have started flocking to social media, my travel wish list has been growing. It’s hard not to ogle at Visit Norway‘s eye-candy on Facebook and hatch secret plans of hanging out amid the Norwegian fjords. It’s easy to get distracted by Visit Jordan‘s teasers on Twitter, and be constantly tempted by the need for Spain.
Then I stumble upon someone who does it differently.
The folks at Takk Takk did not want to ‘create a few social media profiles here and there for Visit Iceland, and build a nice looking website with pictures of landscapes and attractive people,’ like everyone else. Instead, they put Iceland, as its own self, online.
It’s refreshing to see a country with such beautiful landscapes tackling the social media clutter so cleverly. And of course, if you need more inspiration to be friends with Iceland, they have lots of visual ammunition too.
What do you think? Does it make you want to be friends with Iceland?
