IDEC, now present on Facebook, the social networking website

IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra has set up a social network group on Facebook with the aim of creating a meeting point between participants on the programmes it offers. The creation of such a group is a response to the need to bring together some of the groups which have been set up spontaneously by participants on master\'s and postgraduate programmes.

With its presence on Facebook, IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra will be able to keep participants informed about the activities it organises. Participants will also be able to interact, send photographs and recommend web links, and so keep in touch.

Since its creation last July, 600 members have signed up for the IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra group.

Who can access the IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra group?

To access the IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra group you need to have a Facebook profile and to have studied a programme at IDEC. All those who fulfil these two requisites only need to apply to the group for membership.

The creation of this group exemplifies IDEC\'s interest in new trends in IT society. In addition to this, the innovative relations model between the university and companies which IDEC defends is perfectly suited to the nature of Facebook, which connects students and companies according to their interests, academic background, workplace and geographic location.

Facebook is a social networking website. It was created in 2004 by students from Harvard, but it has since opened itself up to anyone with an e-mail address.
