Staying in Touch & Finding Lost Pets: Facebook Community Pages, Part I

Even if you’re not a Facebook fan, here’s a reason to take a look: Many cities and towns have local, citizen-run pages where people post neighborhood information and engage with each other. 

Recent topics on these pages include current civic and local events and new housing developments. You’ll also see people looking for healthcare providers, good coffee, Girl Scout cookies, movers, painters, plumbers, tailors, restaurants, lost personal items, and schools. And lost pets. It looks like lots of cats and dogs are slipping out of the house while nobody’s looking.

Here are pages for people in West Roxbury, Roslindale, Brookline, and Jamaica Plain. We’ll add more, and send us your recommendations! 

(To protect us all from viruses, we’re including direct links to each page you can cut and paste vs. clicking on the link.)
