Stay connected with Google Earth Blog

Late last year, we introduced our Facebook Page (facebook.com/gearthblog) to you and showed you a variety of ways to connect with us. Over the weekend we crossed the 2,000 member mark on Facebook, so I thought it’d be a good time to again highlight the ways you can keep up with the latest geo-news from Google Earth Blog.
Beyond Facebook, we offer a lot of ways to stay connected. Here are the other ways to stay informed:
RSS Feed: I personally follow hundreds of feeds, as its a great way to keep up with sites that you enjoy. I use Google Reader to manage the feeds, as it’s a pretty slick system. With more than 21,000 subscribers, our RSS feed is by far the most popular way that people use to keep up with our site. Here’s a quick look at how Google Reader works:


Twitter: To keep up with us via Twitter, just follow @gearthblog. All of the new blog entries get posted there, along with a few other tidbits. In addition, I monitor that account very closely and will respond to any messages sent our way. You can also choose to follow me (@mickmel), Frank (@FrankTaylor), or Frank’s Tahina account (@GoTahina) if you want. In addition, the Geo list now has 55 people on it that you can follow to really keep up with everything geo-related.
Email: Last but not least, we have email. You can simply sign up to get our latest posts sent to you via email if none of the other options appeal to you.
Is there some other way that you’d like to receive our info? We’re always open to suggestions. If there’s a new tool that you’re using and you have no good way to get GEB content on there, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Not only are we trying to make it easy for you to access our content, but we love to hear from you. Write on our wall, send us a tweet — let us know what’s on your mind.
