Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Setting Up Official Taiwan
Date Sun, 06 May 2012 15:34:17 GMT
It's great to see so many volunteers working at setting up social media 
accounts for the podling in various cultures.  I'm definitely +1 for 
PPMC members working on the lists to setup new accounts - presuming that 
we also have the volunteers to put some relevant content on them.  It 
sounds like imacat will do just fine on this one.  8-)

Given the likely increase in these requests, I hope to have some more 
detailed best practices and a few requirements for social media accounts 
that are labeled as official; i.e. are run by the project itself (versus 
the many other accounts run by individuals about our projects).

Basic guidelines would include:

- (P)PMC approval.  You're already handling this one here on the lists, 

- PPMC ownership.  More than one PPMC member should be able to fully 
administer the account.  A best practice is to have several PPMC members 
being able to post to the account at will, and to have a basic agreement 
at keeping the PPMC apprised of the administrator list and allowing 
other PPMC members to join as authors or administrators.

- A note on the homepage of the social media account/page/whatever 
noting that it is run my PPMC members from the AOO project.

- A link back from the AOO site itself to the account.  This is a key 
way that we can inform users of which social media accounts truly could 
speak for the project or not.  I.e. any "official" accounts the PPMC 
approves and manages should be linked directly to from someplace on our 
website.  Any other, non-PPMC accounts could also be linked, but on our 
website we can let users know which ones we run versus third parties.

Comments on these guidelines?
