Check out Mull Events on Facebook
The main benefit of doing this is that, as a holiday visitor to Mull, it makes it very easy to sign up via your phone to either the Twitter stream or the Facebook wall using one the many apps out there for smartphones. This way you can have up-to-the-minute information on what’s going on where, during the next seven days. It’s a fantastic development as, whilst we have listings for events on Mull from other websites, as yet there has never been a single comprehensive place where you could (hopefully in time) find everything in one place.
This is the explainer I found on the Facebook group from Angust Stewart, “On the 18 December 2010 the U.K. had 28,935,380 Facebook users. It’s hoped that people understand the usefulness of posting a notice on the Isle of Mull Events Noticeboard. Both island residents and visitors can now receive, by computer or mobile phone, information about events taking place during the next 7 days. It is hoped that this can help to support and stimulate events on Mull. Events, however small, may have a better chance of finding their audience.”
If you’re planning a visit to Mull it’s another handy way to keep abreast of what’s coming up during your stay.
Now, if only these events could be dropped into a public Google calendar… they’d just appear in my phone
