Anyway, the facebook is a website where you make a profile for yourself and use it to network with people who you can "friend". You can then post things to your friends' profiles as well as join groups (like the IBP group). You can also do tons of other fun things that are too numerous to fully talk about here, as they are better left to your exploration.
Now, we are saying that you have to join the facebook or our facebook group, but it is just one more way for you to learn about IBP as well as probably the most common way college in the US stay in touch with each other.
The website is www.facebook.com. They have it in many languages other than English, so if your native language is more comfortable for you, you can probably find it on there. You can also join the IBP group at this address: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=31946079949
This will also be a good way to connect with your buddies, too.
Good luck if you decide to join the facebook! Leave a comment if you have any questions and I'll get back to you!
