What is the best city in the whole country? Cape Town, Jo’burg, Durban, Pretoria or Soweto?! These are actually the biggest cities in South Africa. But are the cities with the highest population also the ones with the largest Facebook community? We searched for interessting and popular Facebook “City Pages” and these are our results. Cape Town blows away the competition:
This Facebook page, which has more than 118.000 fans, is South Africa’s third most popular page, behind the Springboks and Gary the ToothFairy! The big community is very active and creates a lot of wall posts about Cape Town related things. A regularly updated blog which is connected to Facebook, fresh Youtube links and a lot of photos from Cape Town and surroundings provide an opportunity to spent a lot of time on this page.
