LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - Sony Ericsson has hit a major milestone by reaching over one million fans on the official Global Sony Ericsson Facebook page.

Each day Sony Ericsson posts a host of engaging content on the page, keeping fans entertained and interested in the brand. With content posted daily, fans are able to meet in the Facebook community and discuss the Sony Ericsson brand and its latest updates.

Through the Facebook page fans have the opportunity to enter a number of competitions with prizes ranging from weekly opportunities to win one of the latest Sony Ericsson handsets, to the chance to attend the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
