Some ideas from me, although I'm not sure how accurate they are:
- readily social
- network with your friends right away
- be in contact with your acquaintances

I settled now on the last one for the Finnish equivalent of "be social".

I think a related possibly difficult term is "broadcast", which I
first translated more directly, but it felt quite non-descriptive in
Finnish (not sure how people understand brodcasting in English) so I
then changed to more like "social networks" and "social network
messaging".
