== Proposed strategy ==


* Target [https://www.facebook.com/TheFedoraProject/ | Fedora Project] on Facebook, [https://plus.google.com/112917221531140868607/posts | Fedora Project] on Google+ and [https://twitter.com/fedora | @fedora] on Twitter.
== Retired Accounts ==
* Leave other services and more specific pages (e.g., the Flickr group, @fedora_gr-the Fedora Greece Twitter) to those who maintain them now
* Expand the [[Status and microblogging SOP|microblogging strategy]] to apply to other social media.
* Pay for four HootSuite Pro users ($30/month): One each in NA east coast, NA west coast, Europe, Asia.
** If in time we find we need more, we would consider adding more to the team.


===HootSuite===
These accounts, for one reason or another, are retired, deleted, or no longer maintained.

===Follower strategy notes===
== Account security ==


* @fedora_linux moved to @fedora on Twitter in 2010 but still has more followers. People tend to follow back (and may have missed the move altogether). We should start following @fedora_linux followers from @fedora, though in small numbers, as Twitter will block accounts that follow too many at once.
Most official social media accounts are managed by each administrator's personal account on that network, like for Facebook or Google+. In cases like Twitter, access is granted to individual accounts using [https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ Tweetdeck]. However, single passwords still exist for these accounts. The passwords are securely stored within Fedora's infrastructure, along with private assets used by the [[Infrastructure|Infrastructure team]]. As of October 2016, [[User:Puiterwijk|Patrick Uiterwijk]] manages password storage and security.
* Facebook Pages are becoming less useful to the organizations that use them due to their new Promoted Posts feature. Fewer eyes are seeing posts. That doesn't mean we should ignore FB, but it's worth noting.


===Questions===
* What do we do about password management? For example, if an account is managed by only one person at this time, and that person leaves Fedora, we'll have an orphaned social media community.
** Would HootSuite solve this issue?? Is that the only scenario there is a question about? '''Answer:''' It's separate problems for accounts we manage in HS vs accounts that RandomContributor is managing alone.
* What's the current state of posting to identi.ca from HS? This may have to be more manual as well.
* What's the state of Identigator and do we want to use it? (Is it currently in use?)

Social media connects Fedora developers, users, friends, and enthusiasts around the world. This is also one strategy to share Fedora announcements, community news, and other updates. All known accounts are documented below, curated by a best-effort volunteering community.

Note: Official accounts are designated official due to their connection to the Fedora Trademark.


Official Accounts

Maintained by Marketing and/or Social Media Teams. Anyone with access to Official Accounts should be members of the fedora-socialmedia FAS group. If you believe you should be in the group, contact a group sponsor.

Account security

Most official social media accounts are managed by each administrator's personal account on that network, like for Facebook or Google+. In cases like Twitter, access is granted to individual accounts using Tweetdeck. However, single passwords still exist for these accounts. The passwords are securely stored within Fedora's infrastructure, along with private assets used by the Infrastructure team. As of October 2016, Patrick Uiterwijk manages password storage and security.

Microblogging Goals/Wishes

  • Use identi.ca primarily and have that mirrored to Twitter: -- Perhaps using Identigator
  • Come up with something more FLOSSy than HootSuite that actually works with Identi.ca (see above suggestion)
  • Verified accounts
  • Twitter accounts we care about are listed. ??
  • Automated (get eyeballs)
  • Manual (for calls to action)
  • push content vs conversations (keeps us authentic)
  • QA and accountability (for quality of content)
  • Aggregate #fedora, #fudcon, etc. tweets -- Identigator maybe ??
