[libreoffice-marketing] Social Media site MeWe and possible presence?


A while back, after the announcement that Google Plus was closing, I
created an account over on the MeWe.com website following a number of folks
from the G+ site.

The service is still on the small side with, from their last report, around
5 million registered users world wide, but growing.

As a site it is similar to Google Plus (which is similar to Facebook, etc).
It is currently walled, in that only registered members can interact with
content, but this is planned to change in the future and the sites content
being searchable and readable without a registration but no hard date on
when that might happen.

The service offers 'groups' which are analogous to 'community' pages under
Google Plus with two major differences: 1st there are no sub-categories and
2nd there is an optional chat feature available. Any member of the group
can post to the group page and if chat is enabled use the chat window.
Groups may be designated as private, which means the content is not visible
to outside members and not returned in site wide searches, or public, which
makes the content visible inside MeWe search results. Groups have enough
optional settings that they can be made to act like pages (explained in
next paragraph).

The service also offers 'pages' which differs from groups in the following
Pages are always public and may not be made private.
Only administrators and moderators of the page may post to the page and
there can be multiple admins and mods.
MeWe users can follow a page and followers can enter comments on posts
there but may not make top level posts.
Pages include storage space for documents/images/videos (I believe that is
currently 8gig but I need to clarify that).
Pages are currently in 'Beta' and free but when they leave Beta there will
be a monthly fee of 2.99 USD per month.
Pages may be 'unofficial' or 'official' branding pages for legal entities -
by default pages will UNOFFICIAL and there will be visible mark on Page
Info pages added by the MeWe service unless the administrators fulfill
MeWe requirements for an official status. (final details on what those will
be are TTBOMK still being worked out)

This is getting rather long..so.

The site uses custom URLS on a first come first sever basis and I took the
liberty of reserving two by creating two pages: (don't click on them)

Category: Software
Website: libreoffice.org

*Page: https://mewe.com/p/libreoffice <https://mewe.com/p/libreoffice>*

Category: Science, Technology & Engineering
Website: documentfoundaiton.org
*Page: https://mewe.com/p/documentfoundation

Presently the pages are NOT PUBLISHED and only visible to two MeWe
accounts, mine and Sophie G (though she may not know that, but when she
connected with my account there I just added in as admin to both).

Group wise, there someone has already reserved a group under the name
LibreOfficeFR and there is a generic Open Source Office Suite group where
posts regarding LibreOffice have been going. That last group has not really
taken off user wise with only 159 members. Other groups however are picking
up users faster, for example a generic 'Open Source' group is pushing
towards 2,000 members and the arts based groups I tend to frequent are
building much faster.

At this point I would be interested to either open a LibreOffice Group or
Page and am interested in hearing peoples thoughts pro or con.

Best wishes,


ps if anyone wants to see those pages I can toggle them to published (and
back to unpublished later) but you would still need a MeWe account to see
