We’re going to use Facebook as a key way we communicate with supporters. So if you’re a Facebook user, join the ‘Akvo’ group right away.

You’ll get previews of things we’re not ready to share quite yet on the blog – for example you can check out our launch artwork for Stockholm World Water Week in full. We’ll also be using the group to store images, recruit people who can help us build out and refine the system and use it as an organising tool for our PR and marketing community. Over time we think it will become an important part of how we build out the whole Akvo community.

If you haven’t joined Facebook yet, try it out. It’s a must for anyone trying to understand how social media will change development collaboration.
