Linking to your Twitter and / or Facebook account allows you to stay connected with your friends, customers, followers on multiple social networking platforms without having to log into each to post the same thing.
- Use the forum!
Share your "stuff". Thoughts (blog or create a Community-Related Discussion"), items or places to rent or for sale, volunteer opportunities, carpooling opportunities, things wanted, what you're grateful for, etc. Recent activity is displayed on the site (and much of it also appears on Twitter via "KearsargeConnex" ) and the more exposure
