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

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. In addition to topics like current civic and local events you’ll 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 slip out while nobody’s looking. Cities and towns also host official town or city pages where you can get updates on topics including meetings, elections, public health, schools and community events.

Here are pages for people in Quincy, Hingham and Braintree. We’ll keep adding 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.)
