You can add photos that will play in a random slideshow (many members already have, and they're great pics!), or videos for other Babes to watch (we have a bunch already!). You can create a Group within the community (maybe on a specific disease, or a goal you have) and you can chat with other members in our chat room (you can participate any time you're logged in.)
