Proposal: Expand our social media strategy to better inform end users, developers, and podmins across multiple services.
I think it’s fundamentally important that we keep our release announcement in sync with our social media. On Diaspora, it has not become uncommon for developers to announce releases themselves. I think it’s actually a wonderful practice, and should remain encouraged on Diaspora itself, but the culture doesn’t quite work as well on non-Diaspora networks.
We owe it to ourselves to ensure that this kind of important information needs to be put out there, and each network is unique in the culture of the users there, and how user engagement is implemented. By driving up engagement with people on other social networks through these pages, we can help contribute to a method of keeping our end users, developers, and podmins informed about the latest updates to the project.
I would like to give login credentials of our various social media pages to a few key community devs, preferably ones that are already involved in our GitHub organization.
Our pages currently include:
Our social media pages can be used as followed:
inform end users of relevant news and articles related to decentralization and the current state of the open web.
Encourage new developers to get involved with a growing community
Encourage new users to leave centralized social services, especially as decentralized social continues to grow and evolve through iteration.
Inform podmins of any hotfix releases being made
Simplify the explanation of decentralized social for the end user, to make its benefits more understandable.
Give support to developers that need help on the #DevHelp tag on D*.
Other networks we could establish a presence on, but don’t necessarily have to:
