Shaw Floors Launches Facebook Page

DALTON, GA. - Looking to connect with consumers more directly, Shaw Floors has launched a Facebook page stocked with a variety of features from product information and sustainability efforts to decorating ideas and how-to videos.
     The page can be found at or by typing "Shaw Floors" in the Facebook search window.
     Shaw Floors said the page is designed to "communicate with homeowners directly in a more personal way" as well as provide relevant product information, design tips and company news updates, along with photos and videos from various Shaw events and links to media coverage featuring Shaw products.
     While the company said it will weigh heavily toward decorating- related content in Facebook posts, it will also use its new social media platform to educate consumers about its sustainability story and performance benefits.
     "While our social media communications will center around flooring's impact on the overall décor of a home, we realize a floor must work with the other elements of a room to create a cohesive look," said Steve Abernathy, director of marketing technology. "Consequently, our Facebook posts will discuss everything from paint and cabinetry to furniture and home accessories."
     Shaw hopes consumers visiting its Facebook page will share their own design tips and renovation stories. To spur this activity, the company will invite consumers to respond to specific questions and to posted photos of Shaw Floors products in their homes.
     "The best part about Shaw having a Facebook page is that we get to converse directly with consumers," added Abernathy. "People are very opinionated, and we can't wait to find out what looks and projects most appeal to our Facebook fans. When designing new products, we scour the world for the latest trends, but you never know - we may find out about a hot new look from a consumer's Facebook post now. It's amazing what technology allows us to do today."
