Jurassic Jaunts:  for us Digital Destinations has accommodated our wish to have a platform for shared experiences, best practice planning plus, enhanced communications and networking opportunities with local organisations.  At the start of the project we were content with our web site.  Our Twitter coverage was achieving a good number of followers and our Search Engine Optimisation was very positive but we realised that we needed to look further at Facebook and other options which have been discussed fully during the Seminars.  We now feel in a more informed position to make decisions relating to the progression of our social media.
