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