    The Facebook page of the Slovak Rural Network was created to ensure the NRN’s presence on the most popular social networking platform and to build its own network of supporters, actual and future partners and virtual friends. It is used to inform its followers about different topics, such as rural development, agriculture, environment and natural resources and to provide them information about forthcoming events. It also allows members to provide feedback and to come up with new ideas and initiatives, as Facebook is now seen as an important social platform to discuss and share experiences.
