[ARCHIVED] City of Destin Launches Facebook Page


The City of Destin joined Facebook today. The page, City of Destin Government, will serve as an extension of the city’s website,, and will be instrumental in providing information to Destin’s residents, businesses and visitors. The Destin Library and City of Destin Parks & Recreation pages have been in operation for the last two years.

“Over the past year it seems that more and more people are using Facebook to get their news,” said Destin Public Information Manager Doug Rainer. “Because of this trend, it makes sense for us to use Facebook to directly inform the public on important city information and not always rely on a third party to pass it on.”

The goal of the city’s Facebook page is not only to message timely information, but also to bridge a gap between the public and the city’s comprehensive website. The site was reconstructed in 2012 and contains detailed information about all city departments, calendar information including public meeting schedules and leisure services programs, links to local and state agencies, and much more. The site is also the place to ask questions and report issues throughout the city.
