I would suggest that for Fedora Magazine and the Community Blog, we follow
Justin's suggestion and use Jetpack (or an equivalent) to auto-post the
publication of new content to the Fedora accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and
Google+. As Joe said, I don't think this will flood the accounts at all.

Justin: I hear your concerns, but there isn't terribly much of a negative
effect if a social media account covers a broad range of topics. Yes, there
are certainly times when you want to break things up into targeted areas
(@redhatevents vs @redhatnews, for instance), but that's primarily a
marketing tool to channel customers into more direct consumer niches. If
the concern is content overload, then I would be interested to see if
JetPack or the equivalent would have scheduling capabilities.
