For quite a while I’ve been taking care of posting social media links on Facebook and Twitter for Magazine articles. I typically catch up on them a few times a week when I have time around other work. That time is getting ridiculously scarce nowadays. I realized today I’ve missed quite a few articles over the past month or so for that reason. It’s also not helpful to the Magazine community that I haven’t been passing on the knowledge on how to do it.
The requirements include the posting person needs to be a member of the Twitter “tweetdeck” team, and at least an author on the Facebook page for Fedora. They’re high-trust roles since these channels speak on behalf of the project. Furthermore, the person should know some basics about how to craft a call to action (CTA) around an article. It’s not difficult to learn but it is important.
Is there a more appropriate way to share and/or scale this work? Do we have other folks in Mindshare that are interested to pitch in?
