Agreed.  Search for 'Fedora' in Facebook and you get many pages with a 
wide variety of utility and authority.  Perhaps a few of us in the 
marketing list could work on what Paul suggests here?  Anyone up for 
this?  There is also a semi-official Fedora Ambassadors page on FB that 
would be good if it could be made official.
