In order to increase the visibility of our site, we may want to start a social media presence. There is now an official Twitter feed for questions that people can follow and retweet. I've also set up a Facebook page for people being able to 'like' the site and share with their friends.

Are there others that would be useful?

  • @kylecronin: great idea, but who would administer these feeds/pages? Commented Jan 8, 2011 at 21:33
  • @calavera I was thinking the moderators would do it, though they'd probably have to be owned by SO, Inc Commented Jan 8, 2011 at 21:34
  • @Dori That's what I was planning on. Any suggestions on the best way to set it up? Commented Jan 9, 2011 at 3:24
  • @Dori Thanks, I've set one up here. Looks like it's working OK. Hopefully we can get control over @askdifferent somehow... Commented Jan 9, 2011 at 3:44

FYI, we are instituting standard Twitter feeds for all (public) sites; this feed will auto-populate with an interesting question from the site every ~3 hours.

This will be announced next week on the blog with more details so stay tuned


  • Looks like I jumped the gun a bit then :) - did you grab @askdifferent? Commented Jan 9, 2011 at 13:41
  • out of curiosity and without attempting to make you release your super-secret-top-valuable-encrypted algorithm, what constitutes an "interesting question" ? Commented Jan 19, 2011 at 12:49
  • @martin it's similar to the stackexchange.com hot questions algorithm.. no real secret there .. see also meta.stackexchange.com/questions/11602/… Commented Jan 19, 2011 at 20:47

This list on wikipedia might be of help to you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites

Personally I think integration with LinkedIn might be helpful as well - it's nice to let others know that we are sharing our knowledge, and a lot of the people I'm networked with there know a lot about these kind of topics.
