  • Citi's new global Facebook page.

    By Joanna Colvin, VP, Social Media, Citi June 20, 2011 03:24 PM

    Citigroup customers around the world are connected to each other in so many ways--and now, Citi is connecting with them through Facebook. We recently launched our new Citi Global Facebook page, which provides an exciting way for those interested in Citi to learn more about our business and the cities in which we operate.

    Indeed as you'll see on Facebook, the world's great cities play a major role in both our business and the page itself. We've made cities a focus on Facebook because so many of our customers live and work in major metropolitan areas--and because Citi plays a large role in their economic development. On our new page you can learn interesting facts about locations from Brussels to Beijing, take quizzes to test your knowledge of urban centers and take part in polls and surveys.
