Argentina: Outstanding Tourist Attractions on Social Media in 2014

Wenceslao Bottaro presents us with the most outstanding tourist attractions on social media from the interior of the country, according to the II Edition of the Ranking of Tourist Attractions and Social Networks in Argentina 2014. He also explains that this ranking is important because:

[…] sirve cómo radiografía del trabajo que los destinos provinciales realizan en las redes sociales. Siguiendo la evolución de su performance en las redes sociales, nos damos cuenta de cuáles son los destinos que trabajan e invierten en Internet, en la generación de contenidos genuinos, en estrategias de promoción y difusión, cuáles son los que están más atentos a las tendencias actuales y, sobre todo, cuáles son los que dejan pasar la oportunidad de posicionarse y ganarse un lugar en el deseo de los potenciales viajeros.

[…] can be used as an in-depth analysis of the work that provincial destinations carry out on social networks. Following the evolution of its performance on social networks, we realize which are the destinations that work through and invest in the Internet, in generating genuine content, in promoting and spreading the word, which ones are more aware of the current trends and, above all, which ones don't leave their positioning to chance and instead attract the attention of potential travelers themselves.
