openSUSE:Social media launch plan

Jump to: navigation, search
This is a list of items to do for an openSUSE distribution release on social media. Help translate it and the promote the messages on the release day! Note that the announcement also should be translated!

Release launch general plan: social media

General approach

Before the release date we need to have a clear plan what to tweet/dent/like and 'plus' at any time. The plan is based on previous experiences and has improved after each release!

What we do: In a coordinated fashion openSUSE community members can deploy the same content in the different languages across social media. The content for the major social media sites is prepared and translated, ready to copy-paste. There is also a time proposal included for when what needs to be send out.

Each openSUSE account has administrators but we need help from others to re-tweet, like, '+' and so on and to use their own channels to spread the word. It is important that we all agree on the right keywords and the general message!

Common contents must include the correct URL, keywords (tags) and references. We use the tags and references to reach a wider audience: the messages have to be designed to show up on streams of people following Linux, Apache, KDE and many others. Do not forget these!

The following two tables help to execute the above plan:

  1. The first table helps to identify the messages that should be promoted in each time zone per media site.
  2. The second table describes the messages in a number of languages.

Preparing for the next release

Social Media Messages for Leap 15.5 (needs updating)

The table below gives the messages we want to get out and at what time (in UTC) over our different media channels. The messages have to be adopted for the social media: twitter (due to the limit of 280 characters, at most 260 so people can retweet it), facebook, etc and for the various languages. We do that in tables below (scroll down!).


Please translate this table and share content on local social media platforms Please translate this table, only the twitter and facebook/G+ tables with the final messages'
