Have any of the coworking spaces used a Facebook group to communicate with their members? It seems that many people are on Facebook. Or a text messaging group? I don't currently live in cohousing. But I run a digital marketing agency and am happy to lend my expertise on skype etc regarding community communication online. Or more marketing related. :-) Marieke -- Marieke Hensel http://twitter.com/hensel 1-877-747-FAME (3263) * * *Orange **you ready to improve your sales?* Receive Branding Personality's newsletter full of juicy social media news, events, and special offers. http://eepurl.com/o19nP On Fri, Dec 21, 2012 at 11:19 AM, R.N.
