BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- With more than 400 million active users, and 50% of those logging in everyday, Facebook, has become a very important conversational tool in a company's marketing portfolio. Add to that, with three million active Pages in Facebook - simply having a basic page design is no longer enough. Room 214 was hired by Pearl Izumi to create a unique custom Facebook page design to deliver content and functionality that is both attractive and resonates well with their fans.

Key Facts
