For Evita Turquoise Robinson, Facebook Is the Capital of the Internet

ForEvitaTurquoiseRobinsonFacebookIsTheCapitalOfTheInternet

Evita Turquoise Robinson, founder of the group, Nomadness Travel Tribe, has more than 10,000 members from all over the globe. The distinctiveness of her group is that while it is open to travelers of all ethnicities, it is primarily African American, age 25 to 40, with 80 percent women.  How did she build up such a following?  Social media was the key to the group’s growth.

“There are so many social media outlets: Twitter, Periscope, Instagram. Instagram and Periscope- — the live-streaming app — allow anyone to follow along on our trips,” she [Evita] said. “If the Internet was a geographic location, Facebook would be the capital. It is where everyone is. If you can start someplace where everyone is and then push out from that point, you have the opportunity to do something special.”
