Where are you getting your best milspo advice on Facebook?
Time to face it, Facebook is where it’s at! Whether or not you have yet to join the cult-like platform, it opens a plethora of information to all interest groups. But for milspouses, it can connect you in ways that other corners of the internet cannot. That means finding — and getting involved in — extremely niche groups. Ones that connect you with others who have similar interests, including those who are military.
Stop dealing with unique problems or wondering who’s out there battling the same things. Find your best niche groups through Facebook and start learning new ways to find and interact with like-minded folk.
