This is how a filled out page looks like. Every time you need to post a new update for your collaborators, you simply add a new component and share whatever it is that you wanted to share. Friends can be invited by clicking on your name in the top right corner. To share a page right click on it from the left sidebar select Share, choose the contacts and that’s it.
