Best Facebook Groups to Join in Your Community (Oakland County)

Best Facebook Groups to Join in Your Community (Oakland County)

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Sept. 13, 2017)

Oakland County, MI – Many communities have online forums where people can learn what is going on in their community as well as connect with neighbors.  These are actually a very effective way of finding out what is going on around town, so we’ve compiled a list of our favorites to make it easier for you too!  Groups that are titled “news and community discussion” are generally run by us here at Oakland County Times.  Please join and don’t be shy about posting (unless you are sharing spam or grumpy stuff, civility is the main premise of our groups).

Here is the list of groups that we recommend. If you know of any we missed, join in the conversation on our Facebook Page.
