UPDATE APRIL 2010

Close to 200 members have signed up on the JICC page at the Development Networks Communication Initiative, see:

http://groups.comminit.com/node/309395/

Not so many on Facebook - just 27.

Part of the problem is working out differences within and between various social networks. An example is Facebook with "causes", "pages" and "profiles" all offering different ways of highlighting an issue.

Confusing, in other words! See here for more:
