A new CROCT logo makes its debut

CROCT’s Facebook page and Twitter feed are now lit
If you’re a member of Facebook, you can now keep tabs on us via our new CROCT Facebook page.
If you use Twitter, you can follow us via our new CROCT Twitter feed (@CROCTers). We just might follow you back.
As one of the CROCT webmasters, I’ve added both a Facebook and Twitter widget to our right sidebar here so you can get a glimpse of the activities with each platform.
Anytime we have a new post on this CROCT blog, we’ll also tweet it and post it to our Facebook wall. Beyond that, I’m sure we’ll find other uses for those platforms.
