Social Media Strategy

Hello Mr Brockmeier,

I agree that we need to put out content that will interest those who care for Fedora, but I think we also should put out content that will draw in a non Fedora or Linux user and that will make them interested in our operating system. Even how Fedora is used for humanitarian causes (e.g. OLPC) or how RedHat adapts some of our innovations to run large corporations. Things that show how we effect the world around us is sure to interest any person. 

Kind Regards,
Beau Mathieson
