* JOIN GROUPS OR CREATE UNEXISTING GROUPS :

FBB is a community, and all good communities have sub-communities - and FBB is no different.

That's why we thought it would be a good idea if we let our members create their own Festival Fan or Others Groups.

This allows you to not only be a member of FBB as a whole, but also a many or as few groups as you want.

For example, What if you're a Electronic Music Fan, and want to talk to other Electronic Music lovers? Simple, join the Electronic Music Lovers group. But.. what if there is no Electronic Music Lovers group ? Simple,Then create one! if the content isn't their, why not create it?

You can even make your groups private if you want. So members can only join by invitation only. Whether that invitation can come from the group owner only, or from any member, that's up to you.

Each group also has it's own private forum, and a wall for members to post on. After all, what's the point in being a member of a group if you can't talk to each other right ? Enjoy.


* VIDEO'S PAGE :

Adding a video to FBB from YouTube is very simple. All you need to do is copy and paste the embed code from YouTube. To find this code, follow these instructions:

1) Open your video in YouTube.

2) Click on the "Share" button just above the description.

3) Click on the "Embed" button that appears.

4) Leave the video size as default (640x360), then copy and paste the code into FBB.

You can even add a description to your video's, just like you do in YouTube. The video's page is a great way for the community with their video's, but also for viewers to find Experiences related to Festivals in Belgium.


* FORUM :

This is pretty self-explanatory. The forums are a cool part of FBB, and allow users to post questions, information, and generally chat with one another.

The forums on FBB are pretty much the same as any other forums you have ever visited. You post a topic in a particular forum, and other members reply. Simply Great to interact with other members !


* ADDING FRIENDS :

There's two ways to add someone as a friend. The first, and quickest way is to hover your mouse over the persons user name, or photo. After a second or so, a popup will appear about the member. On this popup, there's a button to add that person as a friend.

The second way, is to click on the persons name, or photo so that you go to their profile. Then, at the top of the person's profile, there's a collection of buttons. One of the buttons says "Add To Friends".

The friends system on FBB is very similar to that of Facebook. When you add someone as a friend, they have to accept the request, and at the point, FBB will mark you as "friends"


ENJOY !*
