Raleigh's Best Social Media Profiles: An NC Transplant's Recommendations

Raleigh's Best Social Media Profiles: An NC Transplant's Recommendations

I just moved to Raleigh. And I’m obviously not alone. The population increases by 63 people every day with now over a million people in Wake County. According to the US Census, Wake grew 43.5% from 2000 to 2010, and the Raleigh metro region is predicted to be the country’s fastest growing from 2011 to 2021.  It will double in size in the next two decades. None of this info is new to you, but all of Raleigh is new to me.

So what’s a newbie to do but turn to social media to find out where to live, eat and shop. Here are the best of social media getting up to speed and in the know in and around Raleigh.
