Please spread the word to help make this Facebook venture a success.

What is the advantage of using Facebook?
Facebook offers a unique advantage in helping local governments do a better job of listening to their residents. While anyone can join any Facebook page, the fact that people live their real lives and list their locations on Facebook, means that we can easily see if someone commenting on a page is actually a resident.

Why use “social media”?
Social media allows users to interact with each other by sharing news, information, opinions, knowledge and interests. Generally, social media sites like our Facebook page can be used for:
• Raising awareness
• Stimulating discussion
• Recruiting volunteers
• Increasing access to information for specific audiences • Sharing information
• Encouraging public involvement and comment
• Promoting City events, programs, and services
• Sharing Morden Council news and messages
