We created Bridges to foster collaborative community storytelling via social media.
Our mission is to give you a new way to connect to your hometown and make it a better place to live.
In essence, Bridges is a news & events web site for the Triad, a blog hub, and a fun source for good quotes and great photos from the Triad Tribe. When you post something on the web site, read our articles and share them with your friends via Facebook or Twitter, you’re participating in an online forum created for, and fueled by, people who want to be in the know about issues that matter and who want to use that knowledge to make a difference.
We’re so excited about the thousands of people from the Triad Tribe who share their news, events and inspirations here on the web site and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We love discovering new people, places and ideas and sharing them with all of you. Check out our Local News & Events page here. You can also advertise with us and connect with the vibrant Bridges’ Community of movers, connectors and creatives from the Triad Tribe. We offer sponsorship logo space on our web site and training on how to use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) more effectively in both your professional and personal life. Bridges can also build Social Media Campaigns for your business, non-profit or grass roots movements.
