Today, I’ll be sharing 5 of my favorite fanpages that truly “get it”:

Victoria’s Secret

Victoria's Secret's Page

I can tout the technical skills that went into creating their page but I won’t. Their page plainly put is… Pretty! You can always count on them to provide you with your daily dose of eyecandy. They also have very interesting apps such as their Love Note which will allow you to create a very cute love letter to send to your sweetheart.

McDonald

McDonald's Page

McDonald’s page is truly one of my favorites. I’m always greeted with their latest offerings and I always spend a minute or two on it either playing some of their mini-games or checking what others have to say about McDonald on their wall which is constantly amusing.
They also use their page to advertise about their promotions such as the McDonald’s farms in Farmville.
