Now with only a few keystrokes, you can see the latest Facebook posts from the top concours d’elegance car shows in one convenient place. There’s no need to login or even have a Facebook account. Just enter “concours.news” on your computer, tablet or cell phone to see a combined Facebook feed from 30 select shows throughout the US and Canada. Or you can view just the posts from a single show.
Finally, folks with a penchant for old motor vehicles and a disdain for social media can see what they’ve been missing out on: grass-roots, informal notifications about interesting cars, owners, personalities, photos, links, and more. Seasoned Facebook users will like the clean look of the feed… all the essential news without the annoying bells-and-whistles.
.NEWS — “dot news” — is a relatively new top level domain that’s available for website registration in place of the familiar “dot com” suffix. On this site, “www” is unnecessary as well. Just type c-o-n-c-o-u-r-s-“dot”-n-e-w-s and you’re there.
Say you only want to see the Facebook feed for a particular show? To see what’s happening with the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, for example, you would enter into your browser: concours.news/amelia. This naming convention works for the 30 featured shows. If you need information about the event like directions and admission costs, click the Event Info Button highlighted below to connect with the corresponding event page at our original site: www.ConcoursDates.com.*
While viewing the feed, clicking on any post will take you it’s actual spot on Facebook where you can read additional comments and — if you’re signed in — leave your own comments or a like.
There’s also a blog at concours.NEWS that will cover the business and marketing aspects of the concours realm on a regular basis. Plus the concours.NEWS Facebook and Twitter pages feature links, shared posts and commentary on the latest happenings related to concours d’elegance car shows.
*The ConcoursDates website and social media pages were created in 2012 by John Olman as a comprehensive calendar and information resource for the concours d’elegance realm of car shows.
