{{admon/note|Allegheny students!|You may notice that this section is a stub. That means our microblogging strategy has not yet been fleshed in - in fact, it's waiting for you to help us do that. Start with the ideas and proposals - and remember, release early, release often! If you've spent more than 2 hours on something and it hasn't hit the [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/marketing marketing list] yet, take 5 minutes and ''send it to the list'' with a 2-sentence status explanation before you keep going!

People to talk to: [[User:Jnalley|Jonathan Nalley]], [[User:Mchua|Mel Chua]], [[User:Rrix|Ryan Rix]], [[User:Yn1v|Neville Cross]], and anyone else you can find on the mailing list or IRC.
 
 
{{admon/note|Remember: this process must be sustainable for F14 and beyond.| We'll be using this microblogging strategy for the F13 release at the start of May, but we also need to learn how to use it again for the F14 release at the end of October/start of November - so make sure someone else can follow the trail you make!}}
 
 
We have [http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-May/012823.html started the process of obtaining the @fedora account]. See [https://fedorahosted.org/marketing-team/ticket/116 #116].

Strategy

Note.png
We've started developing a Twitter SOP Twitter/microblogging strategy. However, we don't necessarily have one for other social media outlets. Perhaps you'd like to help us fix that - if this is a space you're excited about exploring, we'd love to hear from you. Please email the marketing list and let us know you're interested!
