#gozohangouts is Arkadia’s summer 2013 initiative to promote the beauty and wonder of Gozo. The purpose of this initiative is mainly to encourage the general public to share their favourite places, referred to as #gozohangouts, to a wider community out there.
Participating is quite easy. All you have to do is share any great photos of Gozo you have on your smartphone. You can either share with Instagram or Facebook to your own private account. The most important thing is that you include the hashtag #gozohangouts to your photo description.
Notice for participants sharing on Facebook
By default photos shared on Facebook can only been seen by friends connected to your profile. To ensure that photos you share can be seen by the community at large, please set your photo shares to PUBLIC.
A hashtag is a word or a phrase prefixed with the symbol #.Hashtags were very common on social networks such as Twitte. The hashtag has now become also compatible on other social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, and Google+. In our case the hashtag we are encouraging you to use is #gozohangouts.
Instagram is a photo and video sharing application which you can install on your smartphone. To install Instagram on your phone visit one of the following:
– Android Phones: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.android
– iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/instagram/id389801252?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D2
And place or event in Gozo can qualify as a #gozohangout. It can be somewhere at the beach, a village feast, attraction, event, or venue. We want all participants to recommend and suggest the various #gozohangouts on the island.
For ease of reference we have created this website – www.gozohangouts.com – which pulls all the public posts created with the #gozohangouts hashtag. Or else you can search directly on Instagram and/or Facebook by typing #gozohangouts in the search bar.
