Sounds awesome!!

Twitter -> Facebook: you first connect it to your main profile, then it gives you the option
to reconnect it to a Page you manage. It's weird. From there you can decide whether to post
tweets to the FB timeline, etc.

HootSuite: I've heard good things about it too but their free tier doesn't have team integration
and limits social media profiles to 5. I'll ask around this week if there's anything comparable
floating about.

LinkedIn: I think it would be a good idea to have an official page there too- the groups are
great but more for community discussion than for marketing efforts per se. It's probably on
the less-urgent end of the scale though.

should we add a dedicated "company" LinkedIn page for CouchDB as well, or stick to the group
