Teaneck Joins Facebook, Twitter

Official town information now available on social networks.

Teaneck launched its official Facebook and Twitter accounts this week, giving residents town-related updates on the popular social networks. 

For Twitter, follow the township at www.twitter.com/TeaneckNJGov. Facebook users can "like" the town's page at www.facebook.com/TeaneckNJGov

Both networks are available from smart phones, while Twitter can send updates as text messages. 

Although another popular Teaneck Facebook exists with a similar name, the new official site includes "gov" in the address. 

Township officials have been working to upgrade their communication tools, including a revamped website and email alerts. 

To date, the alert system has 224 sign-ups, Township Manager William Broughton said. 

Government agencies in some neighboring communities already maintain social media pages. Bergenfield Police run an active Twitter feed while Englewood posts city messages on Facebook
