Social Media Expansion?
Another one of my brainstormed suggestions. This is something I've wanted input from the community on for a while now...
We keep our editors informed of wiki stuff and recent franchise news outside of the wiki through our social media profiles. And from the stats I receive from each profile, they're very useful and quite effective! Social media is the ideal way nowadays to get word out about something, and with the wiki currently lacking in activity, we'll need all the help we can get.
Currently the wiki uses Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube, but I've been wondering if maybe we should expand outside of those?
While brainstorming, I've been trying to think about what platforms are popular, used by a decent amount of people, and (more importantly) which ones might have a KFP following in them. These are my top three suggestions:
- Tumblr - If there is any consideration on expanding our social media, this is at the top of the priority list. I've noticed that a LOT of KFP fans like to hang around Tumblr, which is why this would be the best choice set up camp there. A plus is that DreamWorks has a Tumblr, which could be very useful for the future content-wise when KFP3 kicks into gear.
- Instagram - This choice seems to be a little easier to use compared to Tumblr, though I'm not 100% sure about its KFP following. I noticed DreamWorks has an Instagram profile, as well as a few of their artists that are working on KFP3, which I think are good enough reasons to maybe set one up.
- Pinterest - This is the lowest of the three, though not really completely out of consideration. I have no idea if there are KFP pinners out there, but it's a social media site centered around pictures, which we'll definitely have a lot of.
- (Any others? Post about them in the comments.)
Let me know your thoughts about these in the comments, as well as any other social media platform ideas. KFP fans seem to be everywhere, but we want to get somewhere that will be most effective for grabbing KFP fans' attention.
Also, something worth mentioning here: If we do end up expanding into other social media platforms, then I'll need some help with managing them. I'm well off (so far) with managing Facebook, Twitter and Google+ by myself, but I may need some help with YouTube and any other profiles we add for the wiki.
More details will come later once we've decided if we'll actually expand our social media, but if anyone is interested, feel free to make mention of it. We'll work out all the details at a later date. :)
