Admit it – social media is a part of your daily life. Currently there are over 1.5 billion monthly Facebook users. Yes, you read that correctly. Billion. With social media platforms being such a big part of the average person’s life, it only makes sense that there are social media sites for pets! Over 75% of the US population considers their pets to be family. Combine this with social media user statistics, and you have a lot of people who care about their pets and making it known online! The perfect medium for pet loving social media users? The Pet Community! The Pet Community is a social network for pet owners. It’s a place where pet parents can share photos and videos of our pets with like minded individuals…without flooding our Facebook feed (although I have no shame in this)!
If you aren’t acquainted with the BlogPaws community, you most definitely should be. We are the largest online community of pet lovers. “BlogPaws is an inclusive, global community of pet enthusiasts who write about and support pets via social media. We connect brands with pet parents and pet parents with each other, 24/7/365.” This year’s annual BlogPaws conference is in Phoenix, AZ and if you love pets, this conference is for you! In fact, the conference is for a lot of different types of folk. I’ve compiled a list of people who will walk through the doors at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa for the conference this year.
