Social Media on Your Terms > Providing Community Updates

Providing Community Updates

One of the most effective uses of social media is to disseminate news and information about what is going on in your community. This is something we have used extensively in Ubuntu and I want to share a few tips and tricks here.

You should make a point of ensuring that your community is well represented across the social media networks. Be sure to register a Twitter account for your community, a page for it on Facebook, and information on other networks where appropriate.

The Ubuntu community is a large one, distributed across a number of different teams, so we registered a series of different Twitter and Facebook pages to represent each team. Likewise, we have many different websites for these different teams, and have integrated boxes with recent tweets across those pages as well. When a piece of news is ready to share we make a point of sharing it over the most relevant resources, and often cross-posting to all where it makes sense.
