WDSF is dancesporttotal 01/12/2011

Grand Slam on facebook

After WDSF had exceeded the limit of 5,000 friends on facebbook, it started to think about what to do next ...

And whatever needed to be done to keep on going, it had to happen prior to the upcoming weekend and the Grand Slam Finals in Salou, ESP.

So here's the scoop: WDSF has finally made the switch from profile to page, moving its 4,999 friends along and creating a new presence on what is the uncontested # 1 among the social media. Staking out new claims on facebook, "Wdsf DanceSport" continues to exist - albeit under a new user name: wdsfisdancesporttotal.

Prior to Saturday's Grand Slam Final Standard, we hope to have everything set up properly for you to be able to follow the competition through facebook as well. All our other social media outlets - twitter and YouTube - remain unchanged.
