Social Media Sharing

Want to see your hometowners on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Delicious, or MySpace? Hometown Newsmaker's social media sharing tools help parents and students share their hometowners to their favorite social media networks.

To take advantage of this feature, you'll need to use the Email CC feature included in Hometown Newsmaker. This feature links email recipients to the online version of their hometowner, and encourages them to share the content across Facebook, Twitter, and more.
