FGD Steam groups and other social media outlets?

FGD Steam groups and other social media outlets?

Postby Julius » 13 Jul 2018, 12:24

So it seems there are two nearly identical FGD groups on Steam:
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/freegamerblog
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/freegamer

Any comments on those? should they be unified somehow?

And also this Twitter account: https://twitter.com/FreeGamer (I guess Charlie did that long ago?)

Any other interesting social media outlets we or people in this community are active on, besides the https://www.reddit.com/r/opensourcegames/ ?

Is there a Mastodon or GNU-Social group?

hrmm, I should check the blog page. But there is really a bunch of non-used outdated stuff :(

Twitter (not used since 2016):
https://twitter.com/FreeGamerBlog

Google plus (not used since 2016):
https://plus.google.com/115426625866045337489/posts

Facebook (not used since 2017):
https://www.facebook.com/fossgames/

Diaspora (I guess only a tag? still not used a long time):
https://joindiaspora.com/tags/fossgaming

Youtube (never really used)
https://www.youtube.com/user/freegamerblog

Is there something on Twitch? Discord?

@Charlie: we need to see if we can get some of these connected to autoposters. I am currently working on a new much easier federated blogging system and it seems like some of these could be automated. For sure the original blogspot.com page and twitter. Facebook and google+ maybe. Diaspora can be federated, so no need to post there.

Does anyone happen to know who ran this Youtube channel:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqccdp ... aITwHnZJzQ

Seems mostly abandoned, but it has a nice back catalogue of videos.

Sorry, only just saw this.

Yes, let's do something about it. Perhaps email is the best form of communication on this? I could have never read this post.

More of a personal reminder; with this php script one can fetch a RSS feed and repost it on various social media accounts via the Buffer service:
https://gitlab.com/BeS/Mastodon2Buffer
Buffer is free to use for 3 services that include facebook and twitter.

I am also running a RSS-bridge on my server now, so that it is possible to feed social media posts back into an RSS feed and subsequent the Hubzilla planets etc.

I guess that's also a sort of social media:

Hah, I'd forgotten about that. I can't even remember what's on there.
