Come join us on Facebook and Twitter

Soundings Trade Only has joined the social networking wave with the creation of a new Facebook page.

Facebook is a free social networking site with more than 175 million members. Those who become fans of the Soundings Trade Only page can see news articles, blogs, photos and videos that we’ve posted. Fans also can join discussions about issues facing the marine industry or start their own discussions on appropriate topics.

We want our site to be interactive and inclusive, so please join the group. You can find our site by clicking here.

Our sister, consumer publication Soundings also has a new Facebook site, which you can find by clicking here.

For shorter, more immediate updates and comments, you can follow us on Twitter. Click here for Trade Only, or click here for Soundings. We’ve been “Tweeting” since January, so come see what we’ve been chatting about.

I also have my own Twitter updates page. Click here to join.

All of this is in addition to the new comments section we’ve added at the end of all Trade Only Today daily e-newsletter stories. And readers have always been able to comment on our blogs: the twice-weekly “Dealer Outlook” by Norm Schultz and our “Trade Talk” blog, which provides a forum for anyone in the industry to write about relevant issues and topics.

So come join the conversation and get involved. We want to know what our readers are thinking.

See you on Facebook!
