=                         Quick Summary                           =
1) Magazine articles do not automatically go to social media
2) I think they should - hook up Jetpack to do this?
3) CommBlog has its own Twitter account (@FedoraCommunity)
4) Possible to use a tag for special content to go to social media?

This was actually something that we noticed in the CommOps meeting and I 
wanted to bring it up either at the meeting or the mailing list. I'm not 
sure if posts should be automatically scheduled to hit social media, but 
as of now, it's definitely a manual process.

Using Jetpack in WordPress, it's easy to hook up Facebook / Twitter / 
Google+ hooks so that articles are automatically pushed to the channels 
as soon as they go out. I think this is what we should have by default 
since the Magazine articles are fairly universal to whether they apply 
for users or contributors alike.

As for the CommBlog, it does actually have its own account 
(@FedoraCommunity), but occasionally there are articles that are pushed 
out that would be helpful to be shared across the official social media 
channels to get more eyes on them. I'm not sure if it's best to continue 
doing this manually or if we should use a tag to have posts go to social 
media (if that's possible?).

Just some of my thoughts!
