The Ohio Tourism Division has introduced myOhio, a new interactive feature on DiscoverOhio.com, Ohio’s official tourism Web site.
Capitalizing on the popularity of social media networking and consumer-generated content, tourism officials say myOhio allows travelers to share their Ohio travel photos and videos at consumer.DiscoverOhio.com/MyOhio.
“MyOhio provides a fun, interactive forum for travelers to share their Ohio getaway experiences with friends, family and others who may be considering Ohio as a travel destination,” State Tourism Director Amir Eylon said in a news release. “As consumers, we are more savvy today than ever with people exchanging information about their travels on various Web sites and via social networking.
“It is important for us to provide authentic, consumer-generated content so travelers can see what others like them are experiencing and enjoying during their Ohio getaways,” Eylon added.
Travelers can share their experiences on myOhio by posting photos and uploading video directly from their computers, or by linking to content from their Flickr or YouTube accounts.
Images and video from myOhio will be considered for publication in Ohio Tourism publications including the annual Ohio Travel Planner, two Ohio Calendars of Events per year (spring/summer and fall/winter) and on a new background to be developed for the Twitter page @DiscoverOhio where there are currently more than 2,000 followers.
