I have seen posts about Instagram accounts to follow, Twitter accounts to follow and of course, blogs to follow. I am not sure why but list of Facebook pages to follow are always missing. I thought the scales need to be a little balanced. There are a million annoying things about Facebook (algorithm anyone?) but these Facebook pages are just so amazing! They definitely don’t get enough credit.
1. We The People: Beautiful minimalist clothes and gorgeous beaches and travel locations. This blog’s Facebook page is pure escapism plain and simple.
2. Chineasy: I love the idea and the creativity behind this page. ShaoLan, the creator teaches Chinese characters through the most beautiful caricatures and art. Language should be taught like this! I do not understand or speak any Chinese language and have absolutely zero hope of learning but I still follow this page dedicatedly. If you are actually interested in improving some language skills, following this page is a no-brainer.
3. Humans of New York: I doubt I have to introduce this Facebook page. I also love the affiliated Humans of Bombay page but thought it was only fair to first mention the original page that started it all.
4. The Great Panda Conspiracy: Bad day at work? Spilt coffee on yourself? Depressed by the state of the world? Can’t afford to go out this weekend? Just watch the videos on this page. Visiting pandas is China is now on the top of my travel to-do list.
5. Shortcuts: This is a really strange page. I am unsure about the internal politics. To back up, this is a page showing short videos about hair and makeup tips and styles. I think most of them are very cool and particularly enjoy that the models used are not well, models. They basically look like you and me, which is a relief. Also, the tips are actually achievable and not 20 step tutorial on how to braid your hair. What I find really odd about this page is the negative commentary on it. I have not figured out the deal. It’s really odd!
6. French Shabby Lavande: I’ll put it out there. My décor style is pretty minimalist, slick and modern. Totally the opposite of the shabby chic décor cult. But this page is breathtakingly gorgeous. The chances of me living on a rural farm in France are less than .001% (never say never!) but I am addicted to this page. And you will be too – no matter what your décor style.
7. Victoria & Albert Museum: The V&A just won the Art Fund Best Museum of the Year 2016 award and no one is surprised. It’s a gorgeous building with fantastically curated exhibitions. Their Facebook page is as good as it gets. Interesting behind-the-scenes pictures and informative posts. If there is an exhibit you are interested in and can’t get yourself there, check out the Facebook page for details. They post interesting videos from different exhibits. I won’t go so far to say its almost like being there but yeah – it’s almost like being there! (Another tip: I check out the Facebook posts for the exhibit I am about to attend. I do not waste time during the exhibit looking at a short video clip for instance, which I just view on their Facebook page.)
Hope you loved these Facebook pages as much as I do. Please also read about our other favourites – it could give you some ideas for the summer! And of course, if you are not following our page on Facebook, you absolutely should! You also need to get on our email list – lets just keep the suspense for now and say we will be using this a lot in the coming months!
