    we could consider if it is worth it that we get into public discussions like this one https://chaos.social/@2342/103132655762382439 (it is just an example)

  47. SouL

    Mainly to clear doubts and provide help

  48. pep.

    I think that's delicate to participate as @xmpp in there

  49. pep.

    There's gonna be opinions flying around and it'll probably be difficult to stay "neutral"

  59. DebXWoody

    Yes, it's not easy. I recommend to just post news. There are people which are able to support and help.

  60. Wojtek has joined

  61. Nÿco

    yeah, with @xmpp official accounts, we must not engage in fights and opinions battles

  62. Nÿco

    but at some point, with social media, one should "engage" and "manage" the community

  63. SouL

    my point was not to fight, was just an example. More towards what yo usay about engaging with the community

  64. Nÿco

    yes, I know

  65. Nÿco

    but I agree with pep. you might end up being interpreted badly

  66. Nÿco

    as an official account, I'd rather go for a different type of engagement: likes, retweets, answers to polls... and all the stuff stays in "control" (well, as much as possible)

  67. SouL

    So our social media must stay as a feed for the newsletter :D

  68. Nÿco

    so, to me, no, we should post more often, and differently the newsletter is one thing, we move on, we keep on improving

  69. Nÿco

    we have not reached consensus on targetting and channels, so far I hope we do that someday

  70. Nÿco

    but given our targets and channels, we should deliver our message on these places, and engage

  71. SouL


  72. Nÿco

    I understand Twitter is meant for devs I underline you can reach a large crowd of decision makers that's why I would open our Twitter account also to this sort of content

  73. Nÿco

    LinkedIn is mainly decision makers Mastodon is mainly devs

  74. Nÿco

    I more or less see our Twitter account as being the mix of our Mastodon account and on LinkedIn "page", in term of content and tone

  75. SouL

    in Twitter you will find left-ish people that would be more open to XMPP, not only devs (that's my experience)

  76. Nÿco

    btw we can discuss Instagram at one point

  77. Nÿco

    you find everything in Twitter, that's a large enough platform

  78. Nÿco

  81. Nÿco

    regarding our Twitter followers:

  82. Nÿco


  83. Nÿco


  84. SouL

    Dogs 😹

  85. Nÿco

    maybe we need a dog petting XEP?

  86. SouL


  87. Nÿco

    so, yeah, for your initial question: from official accounts, don't enter risky conversations (potential trolls) from your personal accounts, well do what you want :)

  88. emus

    Nÿco: messages which included features like polls, appointments etc would be so good

  89. pep.

    Maybe we can announce LCs and stuff there as well? Maybe even twitter. Potentially with different hashtags

  90. Nÿco


  91. Nÿco


  92. Nÿco


  93. Nÿco

    "event Twitter"?

  94. Nÿco

    so, on the second day of Mastodon, we have 65 followers, thanks to a few shares by influent users: https://fosstodon.org/@xmpp

  95. DebXWoody

    Nÿco, yes, looks good :-)

  96. Nÿco

    still discovering how it works, the few famous accounts I have searched so far have several thousands of followers

  97. DebXWoody

    "how it works"? Get more Follower?

  98. Nÿco

    not only that, how people use it, what crowd we have here, what are the specifics, etc.

  99. Nÿco

    I confess I have not great hopes with Mastodon, but I think we have to consistently experiment

  100. pep.

    Nÿco: Last Calls. We could use this channel to call for feedback

  101. pep.


  102. Nÿco

    ok, clear

  103. Nÿco

    yes, of course

  104. Nÿco

    that needs synchronisation between teams

  105. Nÿco

    tbh, I only follow standards@ at the end of the months, to collect content for the newsletter

  106. Nÿco

    every new "event" in the XEP universe can potentially be announced on social media not sure everything is worth

  107. pep.

    Is there a way to share credentials easily mastodon? Not all commteam has access yet right?

  108. pep.

    Also is scam going to have access to that as well?

  109. Nÿco

    oh good question, I did not explore that yet, I just saw some second factor auth

  110. pep.

    I follow standard everyday, and I'm also an editor, I push the last call changes myself :p

  111. pep.

    in *mastodon

  112. Nÿco


  113. pep.

    Maybe there's a point to be made that editors should push that to other channels as well. I'm entirely sure I want to defend it though

  114. pep.

    Maybe there's a point to be made that editors should push LC announces to other channels as well. I'm entirely sure I want to defend it though

  115. DebXWoody

    It is important to be there and share information about xmpp and to show there is sill a team working on it. For example: https://gi.de/themen/beitrag/vertrauenswuerdige-dezentralisierte-technologien/

  116. pep.

    What is this article about?

  117. DebXWoody

    It is from "Society for computer science" about "Trusted decentralized technologies"

  118. DebXWoody

    friendi, diaspora, Mastodon, Matrix, Jami,.... but no XMPP. This we should change.

  119. DebXWoody

    This is the reason why I created the xmpp-messanger to show that XMPP is still there (I think the best option for IM).

  131. Nÿco

    well done, thx a lot

  132. Nÿco
