The Social Networks Born in Free Bingo
For many in today’s world, it can seem as
though there is a breakdown of community spirit.
The traditional social groups
of old melt away in what is increasingly becoming a global culture. Yet there
are sources from which we can take heart, for as every door closes another one
opens, and one such possibility for community interaction is emanating from an
unlikely source: free
Meeting friends online is not necessarily a new concept for us. Social networking
groups have brought with them an increased awareness of both marketing and social
possibilities. While Bebo is
on the verge of collapse, Facebook is exactly the opposite. It is therefore little
surprise that every bingo provider contains a link on its site to its Facebook
page, where regular players have a chance to “meet” for
real and discuss the jackpot action in a further expanse than within the limitations
of the chat rooms within each bingo provider.
In this way, bingo opens players up to a social network of literally thousands
of like-minded people. We are constantly warned by authorities (not least, those
running Facebook themselves) that when using the site we must take care who we
accept as a friend. Already having a chance to chat with other players over a
few round of their favourite bingo game and then finding their user name on Facebook
is essentially removing the awkwardness that is potentially involved with meeting
new people for the first time.
Sensing this greasing of the social cogs, bingo providers have instigated
games in which players are actively encouraged to meet new people. Events such
as “Singles Games” and “Valentine’s Jackpot” are
just a few of the ideas that have recently sprung into action, offering players
the opportunity to score more than one jackpot.
On this last point, there seems to be no limit to how romantically successful
the community of bingo can be. There have been several cases reported in the
news – both on- and offline – of players who have met in bingo chat
rooms, gotten together (perhaps in an offline bingo hall where they could relax
in the knowledge that their partner is guaranteed to enjoy themselves) and gone
on to be married.. To be both lucky
in love and lucky in the bingo hall could not only provide players
with the beautiful gift of marriage, but it could also pay for the wedding and
honeymoon to boot.
