You may already get Mission Viejo Patch's newsletter (if not you can sign up here, for free of course). And you might check the front page now and then to see what's happening in town.
But did you know Facebook users can receive Mission Viejo Patch updates throughout the day?
If you like us on Facebook, good things are bound to happen. You'll hear the latest weird crime stories before your friends, so you can be the one to tell them about it.
And you'll find out about cool events happening in your city, so that will make you a hit with your loved-ones. Especially the loved-ones who are bored over the weekend and need something to do.
You might even spot someone you know, because Mission Viejo Patch looks for interesting things happening where you live.
Another thing you'll be doing is supporting local journalism in the online age. And that could mean a more transparent government in the future, more accountability in your community and more information designed just for you. Imagine, just by clicking "like" above our Facebook page does all that.
What better way to get involved in your home town? Well, you could always start a blog...
