Social links on new web site?


(Michael Downey) #1

Hey @website-wg folks & others! I know there are active ODK accounts on Twitter and Facebook. I would presume folks would want to link to these from the web site, and there is space already designated in the current test theme's footer (and likely many if not most Jekyll themes) for this. But let's discuss and confirm:

  1. Anyone with concerns or problems adding the FB & Twitter accounts?
  2. Are there other accounts that should be added?
  3. Is there anyone eager to put something like a "live feed" embed on the web site? (Personally I'm not a big fan of this as it tends to clutter stuff up visually, but open to others' opinions.)

  1. No concerns from me.
  2. We have an Instagram feed that no one uses. Maybe leave space for that.
  3. I do like some kinda live feed (usually one post) to give people a sense that there is action happening. Maybe that doesn't have to be Twitter/Facebook, but maybe top three posts from the forum would be adequate.
