Thread: I created a openSUSE facebook page.

  1. #1

    Default I created a openSUSE facebook page.

    Hey everyone. I created a opneSUSE facebook page. I did this in hope to represent openSUSE and maybe have some of my friends check it out. If nothing else I have it to alert "fans" to updated and other reliant current news. The url is
    openSUSE | Facebook feel free to become a fan if you would like ^.^

    good idea, but another one?

    at least 31 different openSUSE groups on facebook now..

    sometimes it is good to search before creating/posting.. ;-)

    Actually I did search them. I know they are there but there are not many fans. My idea of this one was to be maintained my multiple people from these forums. Kinda of like the "official" openSUSE page.

    You should try to contact the opensuse-marketing mailing list. I'm know that there is actually an active "official" Facebook group/page somewhere.

    with employers scrutinizing their employee's facebook account routinely, I fail to see the logic of anyone posting on facebook. There used to be a joke that if you worked at GM, you better not drive to work in a Ford. I wonder if Microsoft monitors employee postings supporting open source? In the pharma industry, it can be risky to post on www.cafepharma.com; I used to work at Sanofi-Aventis and they actually blocked that site on work computers!

    Back when I used to teach, I went to one of the big auto manufacturers'
    HQ in Michigan; it was amazing the variety of cars in the parking lot -
    not all for the company I was visiting, either - sometimes it's smart to
    know the competition VERY well. ;-)

    of course, you mean anyone who is chained to an employer..

    never forget that 'work' is a four letter word....for a reason.

    I agree if you are well established as a self employed person, then post away, but even if you are still in the college years, posting can be risky; A recent case involved a graduate who posted negatively about Cisco and subsequently a job offer from Cisco was revoked. Personally I think we should be able to say virtually anything we want, after all there are free speech issues at stake here, but it seems to be the reality that we cannot;

    oh NO! you mean just by exercising my right to free speech i may have
    blown my chance to work for M$?

    guess what, i would not want to work for any company or government
    which didn't want and value my opinion, whether mine agreed with the
    chairman's, prime minister's, president's, and etc or not.

    that is, to want to work for Cisco after learning they nixed for
    expressing an opinion, well . . . .

    thats wonderful that you have this life situation where you can ignore the reality that posting opinions whether on facebook or twitter can get you fired; it is the unfortunate reality of the digital age that we have zero control over any content we post publicly; one it is out there on google search lists, thats it.
