Though fan clubs seem to be a thing of the past, the need for like-minded individuals to seek each other out is still strong. It's just that we're all too busy these days to fill out coupons and send them along with self-addressed stamped envelopes and a couple of quarters to get a decoder ring and the occasional newsletter. But the Internet has brought us instant connections, in any flavor of your choosing.
If you're into sharing your life with others, you can add the official Residents Facebook Page to your feed.
