Background:

Flash Info was started by Ron Whytock in 2010.

In January 2013 Monika Vermeulen took over the administration of the Flash Info project from Ron Whytock and started moving the project from a purely mail based server to the Facebook Social media platform. Within a short period of time it was proven that the Facebook page was very effective and had the ability to grow itself beyond the existing database as well as simplify life when it came to posting images.

However some people were reluctant to follow the new Social Media trend so the interest of making this page inclusive they created a Flash Info Franschhoek Blog Page for those who are not fond of using Facebook. This also enables users to subscribe to the posts ensuring that they receive post.

Users have the option to subscribe via email and set the frequency of the emails they receive and completely bypass Facebook if they so choose. All posts are published via the Blog Page to Facebook.
