[openFATE 311019] openFATE and Social Media
Feature changed by: Joachim Plack (jplack)
Feature #311019, revision 9
Title: openFATE and Social Media

- openFATE: Evaluation by engineering manager
+ Rejected by Joachim Plack (jplack)
+ reject date: 2017-06-06 18:03:22
+ reject reason: far out of scope
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Nelson Marques (ketheriel)
Partner organization:

openFATE should have automatic interfacing with openSUSE social media.
* All features should be able to be twited (twitter) and 'liked'
(facebook). * All added comments should be tweeted automatically.
By introducing such behavior we would expand the visibility of openFATE
and provide our followers/users with a updated status of what's really
happening, therefore showing the clear positive synergies around the
Community and fomenting user interaction with openFATE.

Business case (Partner benefit): Maybe because:
* We want higher visibility; * We want higher used feedback; * We want
higher user-interaction on the future of openSUSE; * We have nothing to
loose by creating such possibility;

Automated tweets, Facebook updates and LinkedIn updates are IMHO a dead
waste of time. Social Media "community management" just doesn't work
that way. Really, if you're going to do this, you need *humans* doing

I do not agree with the 'tweeting all comments added' one. That would
a) produce lots of unwanted noise (most likely to be considered as spam
by the majority) b) 99% of all comments don't have <140 characters

I'm all for tweeting/denting new feature requests. but not for comment
postings. The few accounts I've subscribed to elsewhere on Twitter with
that kind of reporting I quickly turned off after a while because they
would drown out my other feeds. I would think long and hard about how
the targets would be implemented. I don't think I'd agree with Facebook
and LinkedIn as those are not places to read feeds the way we read
Twitter feeds. In fact, Facebook feeds have become downright a turn-off
lately especially with the likes of Zynga drowning out all the other
feeds out there. And, I would probably not twwet on the general
openSUSE account because that would lead to excessive spamming as well.
So, that means create a separate account for that. And if we have to do
that, did we really achieve the purpose?
All in all, I'm for anything that helps further reach our masses, but I
think there needs to be some thought into how this will be done
properly and effectively.

tweeting and facebooking new features makes sense. Doing something on
every comment will flood the social media and kill any advantage it
has, so let's not do that...
