Go RVing's Facebook fan page is surging in popularity with the site now boasting more than 10,000 registered fans.

The number of fans of the page has grown steadily since being launched in May 2008, and passing the 10,000 milestone is a significant development, placing the Go RVing page in elite company. According to Sysomos, a social media monitoring and analytics firm, only four percent of Facebook fan pages have more than 10,000 fans. The company also reports that 77 percent have less than 1,000 fans.

Meanwhile, the Go RVing Facebook page also continues to have impressive interactivity with fans, scoring 8.1 out of 10 this past week. This number rates the interaction on the page with the metric showing that the quality of posts and interactions between Go RVing and fans as well as fan-to-fan was nearly perfect.

"The popularity of the Go RVing page is a tremendous boost to our efforts," said RVIA Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Gary LaBella. "It is a popular online meeting place where avid and would-be RVers alike share their passion for RV vacations, and there's no endorsement as powerful as one that comes from an actual RVer."

While staff posts comments or asks questions intended to elicit fan responses, active fans also regularly post questions to each other for advice and engage in enthusiastic conversations about the RV lifestyle.

"RVing is the best way to go!" proclaimed one recent post. "I am so happy to have found Go RVing on Facebook. I'm always looking for somewhere to go and other RVers to travel with," reads another. "My husband and I just purchased our first RV this week and we're excited to take it out for the first time. So much to learn…" added a new RV owner. "Love this site," one enthusiastic fan simply wrote.

Go RVing Facebook fans also provided encouraging feedback after learning from a post on the site that the 10,000 fan-mark had been hit. "Good to know there are so many interested in RVing," posted one fan. "Congrats on over 10,000 fans…well done" and 'Yeah…Go RVing!" added two others.

Once thought of as a social networking site for kids and teens, now 45 percent of Facebook's 45.3 million active users are 26 years of age or older. Although users are growing exponentially in every demographic, women over 55 are the sites' fastest growing audience. Go RVing's presence on Facebook is part of a larger effort by the group to make use of low-cost, highly popular social media outlets to deliver Go RVing messages to consumers.
