ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation's online social network Fishington has been selected as an Official Honoree for the Social Networking category by the 13th Annual Webby Awards, the RBFF reported in a release this week. Of the nearly 10,000 entries submitted to the Webby Awards, fewer than 15 percent were distinguished as an Official Honoree.
"We are thrilled to receive this recognition," said RBFF President & CEO Frank Peterson in the release. "So far, Fishington members have created more than 100 discussion groups and added more than 340 'Hotspots' to the TakeMeFishing.org database of places to boat and fish. In the year ahead, we hope to grow these numbers substantially, inspiring more people to take action and get out on the water."
Fishington, which was launched in October, currently has more than 6,200 members, according to the RBFF.
