Jump to: navigation, search

This page is for suggesting future social media posts to be broadcast on the English Wikivoyage Facebook page and/or Twitter account.

Past nominations are archived at Wikivoyage:Social media/Nominations/Archives.

Criteria[edit]

  • Keep it short and snappy; Twitter has a 140 character limit and Facebook posts are generally no longer than a couple of sentences.
  • Posts should be informative and entertaining, with subjects related to topics covered on Wikivoyage or about the wider Wikimedia movement.
  • Social media posts should ideally help to broaden the Wikivoyage community by encouraging people to read and edit content here and on other Wikimedia sites.
  • Articles linked in social media posts don't need to be perfect, but preference should be given to those with a status of "usable" or higher.
  • Articles linked in social media posts must include information relevant to the posting (e.g., don't create a post about a festival that is never mentioned in the article).
  • Relevant images are optional but welcome.

Format[edit]

Nominations should have the following format:

{{socialNom
| blurb=The content that will appear on the social media posting.  If the posting is meant for Twitter be sure to adhere to the 140 character limit.
| image=An optional image that should accompany the posting.
| link=A link that should accompany the posting, usually to a Wikivoyage or Wikimedia article.
| date=An optional field that can be used to specify a specific date or date range for the posting.
| other=An optional field that can be used to explain why the nomination is being made, why the date range is being suggested, or anything else that the nominator feels might be important.
| nominator=The signature (~~~~) of the person making the nomination
}}
