Victoria Buzz has recently acquired the “I Love Vancouver Island” Facebook page in preparation of launching an entirely new portal called “Vancouver Island Buzz”.

“I Love Vancouver Island” was created about 5 years ago, and at one point saw a growth between 3,000 to 7,000 new followers per week before stagnating when management switched to a new direction.

The page, which currently sits at nearly 90,000 followers, has been renamed to “My Vancouver Island” in preparation of merging with “Vancouver Island Buzz” – a newly established page that will be managed by Victoria Buzz.

Vancouver Island Buzz will feature photos contributed by the island community, contests and giveaways from local businesses, and news stories down the road.

“These are exciting times for us at Victoria Buzz,” says founder Mike Kelly.

“We literally just doubled our social media network overnight and extended our reach from the Greater Victoria area to the entire Island.”
