As the Peters Patch Facebook page approaches 1,100 "likes," we take this time to offer five reasons why you should join that crowd.

1. We break some stories on social media. Often, before we even write an article, we tease that story on Facebook and on Twitter. Hear what's coming before it actually comes.

2. Stories often appear on Facebook before they appear in our daily newsletters. This applies not only to hard news but also to some feature stories that we're finishing during the middle of a day.

3. Your friends are doing it. In this case, literally, your Facebook "friends" may already like us. See which Patch stories that they're sharing, and they'll see which ones that you're sharing.

4. Some conversations exist only on Facebook. Fan of our comments section? Some readers leave all or some of their comments only on our Facebook page.

5. Leave a public message. It's not just our editors who can leave something on our Facebook wall. You can, too.
