Face2Facebook is a non-formal education method which can be used in the beginning of the project, as a getting to know each other game and during the project to build the group.

Aims of the tool

Foster interaction between participants, stimulate individual reflection on expectations, fears & contributions to the project

Description of the tool

Each participant received an A4/A3 paper with a template of a Facebook account. They have to fill in the name, update their status and info (hobbies, location, work & studies, etc.). In order to add friends, they will have to walk around the room and meet the other participants, sharing info of their profile. Also, they can draw each other profile photos. Depending on the size of the group, this activity can take up from 20 to 40 minutes. The "profiles" will remain on a wall and they can use it during the project to send messages, give likes, add more friends, etc.
Face2Facebook can be, additionally, used for reflection. The template can also contain 3 empty posts, stating only "feeling hopeful", "feeling scared" and "feeling confident", where pax are supposed to write their expectations, fears and contributions, individually, which can be later discussed in the group. This part, including the discussion, can take up to 30 minutes. Due to the fact that the "profiles" remain visible during the whole project, trainers can invite pax to go back to these sections during daily/mid-term/final evaluation and update their status.

- It best suits to a project linked to: communication, digital tools, social media, no hate speech online, cyber-bulling and other related issues.
- Personalise the template with the project's identity (logo, name of the project, etc.), but let enough space to be filled in by pax.
- Be eco-friendly, you do not have to colour print it. Encourage participants to paint it and make it look nice.
- If you have a photo camera that prints on the spot, you can take pics of pax and hand them.
- Make sure you have a visible place to put them until the end of the project and encourage pax to use them regularly.
