Facebook

What is Facebook?

Facebook is a social networking service that lets you connect with friends, co-workers, and others who share similar interests or who have common backgrounds. Many use it as a way to stay in touch after finishing school, or as a way to share their life publicly. What makes Facebook different from other social networks are its extensive privacy controls, its development platform, and its large and quickly growing user base. Facebook has been called the "thinking person's" social network. Compared to many other social networks, Facebook gets new features and improvements on a regular basis.

How do we use it?

Like us to keep abreast of upcoming water-related events, opportunities for recreation and volunteering, and to hear about interesting news items related to water resource management issues. Share with us and other Facebook users scenic photos of your local lake or pond and its wildlife, your community volunteer events, or water-related local news.

RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Now the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a "feed."
