You can CREATE PAGES on this network

Now you can also CREATE PAGES on this network. Note the new "Pages" tab in the menu bar. Clicking on that takes you to where you can see pages created by other members, and you can create your own. It is possibly the simplest and easiest page creator I have seen so far.
