Re: [Gimp-web] Which social media sites shall we support?

I'm revisiting this soon, and think that, as Alex already mentioned,
focusing on Twitter, G+, FB seems like a good start (a good case might be
made for something like Pinterest as well, but I'll leave that for later at
the moment).

I'm actually thinking of forgoing any icons and instead including them
directly in the footer of the page.  If you're pulling the site down and
testing/building it locally I'll push a branch later with my thoughts for
your feedback and input (for anyone on this list too, of course).

Let's move this topic to a separate topic.

For the Share buttons at the bottom of blog posts, it's pretty easy to
just add another link, and I think the limiting factor should be more
about design -- a million little icons will make the page look
cluttered. A solution to this which I like is to have a single Share
button, which toggles the display of all the different social media

However, getting users to *subscribe* to our social media profiles
means giving them content to follow -- and each extra social site makes
reposting GIMP-related links more tedious. So we'll want to be
strategic about which platforms we use:

* We've talked before about Twitter and Google+.
* Facebook is too big to ignore, I think.
* Ello has the nicest visual design of any social media site I've seen,
so I personally like it a lot. It's still fairly small and new, though.
* Tumblr, Deviant Art, Instagram and maybe Pinterest have large
communities of artists, so there are likely many GIMP users there.

Flickr is maybe *too* focused on uploading original images to work for
this sort of thing? But there is a somewhat active GIMP Users group

Andrew, personally I'm only prepared to support Twitter, Google+, and
Facebook. I don't (and shouldn't) mind if other people represent us
there, but I'd personally feel more comfortable if I knew those people
enough to trust them with this task.
