SB Nation Nashville Predators blog On The Forecheck took part in a panel on Preds online communities called "The Puck Drops Here", hosted by Social Media Club Nashville. While the discussion focused on technologies like Facebook and Twitter, general online community building practices were also discussed, including one of the foundational elements of SB Nation.
