Spread the word with Facebook and Twitter sharing icons
We've added Facebook and Twitter sharing icons to Googolplex, as well as its sister publications. Use this function with your staff and members to expand your reach.

To improve engagement on Facebook, social-media resource Mashable recommends including a call to action in posts. Ask questions to invite comments and build rapport with credit union members and potential members.
"Multiple experiments by other brands and yours truly show that the posts where you include a call to action get better-than-average engagement," writes Ekaterina Walter, a social media strategist at Intel and contributor to Mashable.
