July 16, 2014 8:28 PM

POCATELLO, ID (July 16, 2014) -- The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) is proud to announce that it has added to its online presence two new social media venues. BRC can now be followed as "brc4access" on Instagram, the biggest image sharing application on the internet; BRC  also can be found on Google+, a fast growing utility created by the well known internet search engine of the same name (you can access BRC on Google+ directly at: http://bit.ly/brc-google).

"These new social media venues grant BRC greater reach in getting the word out," said Michael Patty, publishing editor for the coalition. "It also gives our members and supporters more options in choosing how they prefer to follow our information feeds."

BRC will continue with its established presence in the social media venues it is already involved in, such as Facebook and Twitter.

"We at BRC are excited to be able to reach our members and supporters thru additional mediums," said John ('JP') Parrinello, BRC President. "We look forward to their feedback. This is just one more tool in our fight for public lands. Hopefully we will reach those who may not use other social media and get the word out to more people."
