Queen Creek officially launched new accounts on three popular social networking sites.

The town's new Facebook, Twitter and Flickr pages are meant to give residents a new, relaxed way to learn about what's happening in the town from home, according to a press release.

Queen Creek joining social media Web sites

The most popular method so far is the Facebook page, which had 165 fans as of Thursday afternoon. The page has been up for a few weeks, and photo albums and other items have been uploaded, although the town only started publicizing it earlier this week.

The Facebook page features posts about town events, traffic closures, photos from different events and links to articles and press releases. Residents have also used the Facebook wall, a place where users can post feedback and messages, to ask staff members questions or make comments.

There are also links to accompanying pages featuring the town's fire department, parks and recreation department and Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre.

Queen Creek's page on Twitter, a Web site that allows users to post updates in 140-character bursts, is emptier. It had two posts and two followers Thursday afternoon.

Town staff members have said the Twitter page will be used to publicize items like road closures, major Town Council decisions and information on registering for events.

Twitter members can sign up to follow the town's account, which means Queen Creek posts will be sent to them automatically, or anyone can log onto the page.

The town's account on Flickr, a photo-sharing site, had 12 photos posted of Queen Creek facilities, maps and council members on Thursday.
