LOU Facebook Group Comments Policy

Group Purpose

The LOU Facebook Prozone Group was created in 2012 and is an initiative of the Laughter Online University (LOU).

  • We provide a friendly, informative and enjoyable online sharing and discussion forum (Posts are not a one-way street where someone posts and everybody silently agrees. Discussions are welcome and encouraged);
  • For laughter enthusiasts and professionals worldwide in general and LOU students in particular (People in this group already know a lot about laughter and how to use it therapeutically);
  • So that they can network one with another and continue their laughter education by learning the latest trends and how to implement them, and get lots of new ideas, tips and tricks on how to better help their clients and/or students.

Group Geography

We serve an English speaking community and we’re worldwide, with members currently in 42 countries on 4 continents.
