A large majority of people have never heard of the U.S. Territory of American Samoa or that the only U.S. national park south of the Equator is located here. To reach out to these under-served audiences, the national park has diligently been posting two to four posts per day to its Facebook, Twitter, and blog pages. Once virtual visitors discover these pages, they share them with their friends and families. Throughout the last two years, approximately 200 new fans per month join the park's Facebook page. These virtual visitors experience the uniqueness of these South Pacific islands through posts that range from staff project updates to features about the unique tropical rainforests, coral reefs, fruit bats, and the Samoan culture.
