The Dorset Echo is now on Facebook as well as Twitter so online fans can get the latest news and stories at the touch of a button.

This week the paper has launched its own Facebook Fan page to run alongside its existing Twitter accounts for the Dorset Echo and Dorset Echo Sport. Both these social networking sites are perfect for staying in touch and keeping up with friends no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

With Twitter and Facebook you can get instant Echo updates, either to your own Twitter page or if you want, straight to your mobile.

Our new Facebook fan page offers the latest headlines, breaking news and a chance to have your say, and if you become a fan you can get our headlines direct to your news feed.

Dorset Echo editor Toby Granville said: “This gives our readers a fun opportunity to interact with the Dorset Echo and demonstrates that we’re not just a daily newspaper but an organisation that is embracing the digital age.

“Readers will be able to get up to date with the breaking news as well as information 24/7 at the touch of their fingertips.”
