    The Facebook fan page of the Croatian National Rural Network (NRN) promotes agriculture and rural development in Croatia by providing information on rural development, agriculture, the environment and natural resources. The Facebook page is also used to inform stakeholders about forthcoming events etc. The page allows the network to share links on articles, videos and websites or disseminate information on their own products. All people who 'like' the page are invited to comment and share their own information and opinions on key topics. Facebook is now considered one of the most important means of 'communicating' rural development.
