Social Media and Community Living: How to Connect with Like Minded People

I have some good news for you. Other people interested in building community are out there. Now, that is the easy part. What we all need to do next is figure out how to meet them. This is where social media can help us.

If you’re not on social media I highly suggest that you change that. These websites, like Facebook or Twitter, can help us connect not only to our friends and family but also engage in conversations about our lives with others who have similar goals and interests.

Here are four ideas for connecting with linked minded people through social media.

Facebook. A lot of people from all age groups spend time on the most popular personal networking site online. You can connect with old friends from High School and keep up with your kids and grand kids. There are also plenty of Facebook resources for connecting with others who want to live in community or explore alternatives as they age. Women for Living in Community has our own Facebook page to encourage connections and discussions. Another popular page is the Golden Girls Network.
