Social Media -- City of Miramar, Florida

I guess that I probably should have found that the City of Miramar is on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube by now, but nope, I just found out this morning, by chance. As is often the case, the City has a long disclaimer about the information not necessarily being timely and other liability type stuff, so you should take a moment to read that and always double-check their information (and the info you find here too, duh). My disclaimer is that I am not affiliated with the City of Miramar in any way other than being a resident since 2004 and that I love my community and where I live. Take what you find here as hopefully helpful info, mostly facts, but certainly with some opinion and personality peppered in. Thanks for reading. Oh, and feel free to comment on any post or drop me an email with any input you have. Can't wait to hear from you!

Twitter: Since their Social Page link to Twitter above just takes you to Twitter's home page, I found their actual Twitter page for you. It doesn't appear that they use this medium to interact with their followers or individuals directly, but they do have regular updates and links that offer interesting facts about programs, activities and events in Miramar. I'm going to click on a bunch of those links in a bit so I can read more. There are some good topics that I want to know more about. http://twitter.com/CityofMiramar

Facebook: Personally, I have a bit of an allergic reaction to Facebook, so I am not really involved with the site at all. That has nothing to do with the City's involvement, just personal taste. Since I know a lot of you are big Facebookers and/or are addicted, here is the City's Facebook page. They seem to do updates more than daily, so this could be a great resource for you! http://www.facebook.com/miramar.florida

YouTube: Now this channel is absolutely awesome! It appears that the City is nearing 100 videos covering many different things about Miramar, from the Community Garden to the ParaOlympics at the Ansin Sports Complex. These aren't the normal terrible YouTube videos that everyone has seen. These are professionally done videos and are very interesting and diverse. Go spend a few minutes there! For real. http://www.youtube.com/user/miramar76#p/a
