Whether you are a parent, professional, student, or just simply from El Paso, then you should be following these five fun and helpful Facebook Groups.

Facebook Groups are useful for connecting people with common interests, meeting new friends, sharing information, or finding support.

Local Facebook Groups are even better because you network and interact with people who are part of the borderland community, which has its benefits.

And just as vast as the internet is, so are the Facebook Groups, but these five are my go-to check-ins online.

(PEEP) is one of my favorite Facebook Groups because it's a page where local photographers of all skill levels share some of the most stunning photographs across the region. The page also helps develop artistic and technical photographic skills, provides educational programs, exhibitions, and competitions. They also include a monthly newsletter and host photoshoots every third Sunday of each month.
