Social Networking for MNWS

We have been looking at better ways to share info and help Society members to connect with each other, so we have launched a number of social networking channels. Participation is voluntary, of course, but we think you might enjoy taking part. We'll be talking more about this as time goes on, so you'll get an opportunity to ask questions, and get help if necessary. Here are the channels that are currently in place:

  • MNWS LinkedIn group. LinkedIn is a networking Website used by people to connect with others in the same industry. It works well for artists, too. You’ll need to join LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com and then do a search for Minnesota Watercolor Society group.

  • Are you a Facebook user? Then search for Minnesota Watercolor Society Fan Page once you are logged in, and join the group to view and post messages, pictures, videos and more.

  • MNWS is on Twitter. Follow our Tweets (short announcements, news, and other Society related info) at www.twitter.com/MNWatercolor
