FOK! is a Dutch website and virtual community, containing active content like news, reviews, columns and polls. It was founded by Danny Roodbol, and is one of the largest internet communities of the Netherlands. The forum's user group is diverse, though much of its content is targeted towards a younger audience. Currently over 437.000 accounts have been created and the forums post count is over 147 million.

At its inception, the website gained recognition by being associated with Big Brother. FOK! offered lots of scoops about the television program and soon visitors of the official Big Brother site were sent to FOK!forum to discuss the show.

Frontpage[edit]

The news that is posted on the frontpage of the site is managed and written by volunteers. Not only does the news consist of important events, it also has room for some lighter and funnier news. Lots of other sources, like radio stations, seem to use FOK! as a source to find content for their shows.

Apart from the general news, FOK! has special sections for news and reviews about videogames, films and sports.
