BLOOMINGTON, Ill., April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's largest auto and homeowners insurer announces the launch of State Farm Latino, a new social networking page for Latinos on Facebook (www.facebook.com/statefarmlatino).
State Farm is the first national insurance company to create a bilingual page for Latinos who subscribe to this social networking site.

To inaugurate the launch of State Farm Latino, State Farm will invite Facebook users to converse about the nominees, presenters, and performers leading up to the Latin Billboard Awards on April 28th.
