You either like Facebook or you dislike it. The IFDCO started using Facebook and most of you have visited our Bulletin page. The IFDCO webmaster uses Facebook a lot.

That’s why the webmaster opened the Facebook page Guest Ned, for the Dutch FD-members. This is for all the members who want to look around on Facebook, but don’t want a private account.
