ocuments can be shared, opened, and edited by multiple users at the same time. And users can be notified via e.mail about any changes made another user.
Features: Google Docs is Google's office suite with "software as a service". One can create documents, spreadsheets, presentations with Google Docs, import through the web interface, or sent via email. However, Google Docs do not have an equation numbering feature. The documents may be saved to your local computer as well, in any format like: ODF, HTML, PDF, RTF, Microsoft Word. Another very good thing is that documents are saved automatically to Google's servers to prevent data loss, and a revision history is automatically kept. The documents may be tagged and archived in different categories of your choice, for organizational purposes. These services are officially supported by recent versions of Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome browsers and 1GB of storage is included for free.
Comment: This is a very powerful tool and could really help e.g. the board of your Square Dance organisation to collaborate and develope documents. You can upload, download, edit och convert documents as you wish. Protocols can easily be written in real-time, shared and read by any other user of your choice.
Huddle Workspace is another excellent tool to get your team working together. One may create different workspaces for different groups of connections and you can decide who sees what.

Facebook is a very powerful tool for sharing Square Dance to more people. It is a global Internet Community for everyone, since the beginning in 2004 it has reached about 600 million users, about 11 % of the world's population.
Fan page - Create a Fan page for your organisation, company or Square Dance club, for people to "Like". On your page you can tell people about your organisation, or even about yourself! You can also present your website, show photos, videos and even ask a question about people's opinion. You may also use Facebook as your fan page and spread information like it is from organisation, company or Square Dance club itself.
Groups - Create a Group and gather your friends, collaborators, club members and Square Dance associatives. Within the group you can share updates, links, photos, events and ideas. Another big advantage with Groups is that you can easily create, edit, laborate and share documents within the group (like with Google Docs or Huddle Workspaces). It may be "open" or "closed" for other Facebook members to join and thereby you can choose if the group should be public for marketing or secret, for your organisation to share material only within the group.
Events - Create an Event for your upcoming dance, party or other Square Dance get-together. Thereby you can tell people when and where the event will take place and the invited guests may RVSP directly on Facebook by simple responding "Yes", "No" or "Maybe".
Pictures & Movies - You can upload movies or pictures and easily arrange these in albums with comments. Your Facebook friends may "Like" or comment your uploads and albums and these can easily be shared to others. This is one of the most powerful since many of us has friends on Facebook who do not know what Square Dance is or what it looks like. Be keep adding Square Dance movies and pictures on Facebook, more and more of other friends will sooner or later happen to catch sight of Square Dance.

Another very powerful tool is YouTube(?) where one may upload videos that can been viewed by anybody in the whole world. YouTube is a website on which users can upload videos to share with others.
