Marketing social networks
There are a lot of Fedora developers, users, friends, and enthusiastic people all over the world. Social media is the way that we can connect all of these different people together with various Fedora news, announcements, and updates. All of our currently maintained accounts are listed below. Note that some accounts are official while others are community-maintained.
All of these accounts are the official Fedora social media accounts maintained by various members of the Marketing / Social Media team. Note to have privileges to social media accounts, you must be added to the FAS group for social media. If you have privileges but are not added to the group, please contact Paul Frields.
Secondary accounts are accounts created officially within the project, but they are not the primary method for distributing news or information. Often, these accounts post automatically or pull from other feeds to relay content.

Community accounts are pages related to the Fedora Project, but are not officially maintained by Marketing team members or Social Media administrators. Often, these groups are specific to a region or country. These pages are usually run by an individual contributor or a group of contributors. However, these pages are not officially endorsed by the Fedora Project or Red Hat.

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.
- Social media was briefly discussed at the Marketing FAD 2010. complete logs are available (start at 14:10:39). For a shorter recap, see this video of Neville Cross, Ryan Rix, and Paul Frields explaining the discussion and a diagram of the whiteboard (photo by Henrik Heigl).
- 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 ??
