Social media is changing the way that we communicate with the world. It’s easier than ever to grab your smartphone, twiddle your thumbs, and let the world know what you’re up too. Billions of people around the world are on social media and the chances are pretty good that you are too.
Whether you’re posting your coolest ski photos on Instagram, changing your relationship status on Facebook, or tweeting your thoughts about climate change on Twitter, social media is a fantastic communication tool to stay connected with your friends, family, and community.
If you’re on social media, you might as well take advantage of it to get involved and stay connected with the Big Sky community. One valuable resource we find incredibly useful is Facebook Groups. There are numerous groups set up that allow you to do all sorts of cool things – sell outdoor gear, organize ride shares, search for jobs, sell your household stuff, find housing, learn about community events, network with young professionals, organize trail rides, be a part of stitch and bitch, join pick-up sporting events, and so much more. Join any of these groups and you’ll have a pretty cool local/social connection to the greater Big Sky community.
Below you’ll find a handful of Big Sky Facebook Groups that will help you become a part of the Big Sky Social Network:

Now some of these Big Sky Facebook groups are public and some of these groups are closed. That means you may need to have a connection to join the group, but it’s worth a try. All of these groups were found by searching “Big Sky” in Facebook Groups. Try doing the same thing and you’ll likely find all sorts of cool Big Sky groups that we’ve haven’t even heard of yet.
