Meet a Few of Boingo’s Superfans on Facebook

Here at Boingo, we aim to design our Wi-Fi service and apps around the best customer experience possible. That’s why social media engagement is so central to our efforts — the customer feedback on social networks helps to guide us on improving and updating our offerings. Since our community shares common interests in travel and technology, we also strive to curate interesting conversations on those topics. Obviously, the success of these initiatives relies heavily on community participation, which is why it warms our hearts when members converse regularly with us via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube and the Hotspot blog. To express our gratitude, we honor two individuals each month — one via Twitter and one via Facebook — as superfans of the month. Join our social communities today and let us get to know YOU as a Boingo superfan!

Meet Boingo’s superfans on Facebook. We are so thankful for the great conversation and support from our superfan community!
