[Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Rodrigo Padula-3
Hello fellows!

Since the end of the last year some contributors from pt.wikipedia are discussing regarding the idea of including the promotion of our Facebook Page on site Notice [1]

That proposal was started by Teles, a Brazilian steward. He received a lot of local support.

The general idea is to bring more people from Facebook to access Wikipedia through our Facebook page, but what we are doing is redirecting users from pt.wikipedia to Facebook and including a free Facebook ads on pt.wikipedia.

I would like to know if it is ok for the Wikimedia Movement and if this kind of Facebook promotional campaign was proposed and published in other wikipedias/wikimedia projects.

Hello Rodrigo,

on Bulgarian Wikipedia we put a text asking readers to like our Facebook
page, our Twitter and Google+ accounts, as well to visit our blog [1]. The
Facebook likes went up from 1923 to 5381 in a month, 126 people followed us
on Twitter (virtually nobody did it before that), 123 people followed us on
Google+ and the reader numbers on our blog went significantly up (I don't
have the data right now). Nobody in the community objected to this and we
would probably do it again some day. We decided to remove it after a month,
because we saw that the number of new likes declined over time.

Best regards,

Hey Rodrigo,

I don't know of any example where Site Notice has been used in the past to
point people to facebook.

Although the intentions behind what is being proposed are good ones, I
think there are probably issues that surround neutrality and with the very
different privacy policy of facebook.

Based on those things alone it is not something I would recommend. I would
be happy to follow up with you further off list if you would like to
discuss this further.

Regards

In reply to this post by Nikola Kalchev
Nikola - but does it bring any added value to Wikipedia? Does number of
active editors in Bulgarian Wikipedia increased because of it? Can you see
it in Wikipedia statics? IMHO it is the only thing which might legitimate
such an action.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Asaf Bartov-2
The Macedonian community has also had success attracting attention to their
social media channels via Facebook etc. links on sitenotice for a while.  I
believe they reached a staggering number of likes (~35000 was it?), from
next to nothing.  Those social media channels seem to have been used to
considerable effect in drawing attention and attracting contributors to
events like WLM.

This was discussed at the Wikimedia Central and Eastern European Meeting
2014.  Notes from that session are still on Etherpad[1].

CCing Bojan for potential additional details.

Indonesian Wikipedia has used site notice to link to their Facebook
group, Twitter, and Instagram for years.

Their facebook page has 97,236 likes.  https://www.facebook.com/id.wiki
posts often get 100 likes

compare with Wikimedia Commons page, with 2,793 likes, and posts
usually attract < 10 likes.

In reply to this post by Joseph Seddon-6
While I appreciate these concerns, I think that the most suitable people to
determine whether this is appropriate for the Portuguese Wikipedia are the
users of the Portuguese Wikipedia.  Perhaps with a veto by the WMF Legal
Team if there's some terms of service related reason this can't happen.

Cheers,
Craig

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Nikola Kalchev
In reply to this post by John Mark Vandenberg
Hello Tomasz and everyone else

according to https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesWikipediaBG.htm the
number of active editors has raised by 19% in January, but it might as well
be because there were Christmas holidays in December. I do not believe we
have enough data to make a good quantitative analysis.

Something else we organised was a weekly "wikigame" – we asked a question
on social media and Wikipedia every day and the person who answered the
most questions correctly got a book for up to 15 Euro (the price of a
pretty good paperback edition of books, which can be used as sources). That
lead to a few new editors and a few new articles. I believe social media
have a potential and we will see that during CEE Spring. The themes were
Olympic games, football, art, history of Bulgaria and geography.

Best regards,
Nikola

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

In reply to this post by Craig Franklin
I also noticed the practice in idwiki to promote Facebook page of the Wikipedia in question through site notice. During this year’s discussion of Chinese Wikipedia’s annual strategy, One of our proposed aims is to promote outreach through the Net. I once had a plan to promote our Facebook pages (now diversified roughly by regions, no unified Facebook pages for us), twitter, weibo and IRC channels (there’s a renaissance of IRC in zhwp during the past year) through a site notice. Though our twitter is just a feed of our items on OTD, FA, GA and DYK columns, and Weibo account, which once accepted funds from IEG, is dormant since the last Wikipedia blockage by Peking (thus weakens the effect to absorb more editors). The plan is temporarily on hold. I am thinking that there’re still many of the members of Chinese community do not have an awareness on Net neutrality, so even I do not make any consultation on this plan, I think this plan will be passed with no objections (to make it more easy, generally requests to put up particular site notices are usually not noticed by ordinary users).

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Joseph Seddon-6
I stand corrected on all fronts and now know a few examples :D Personally
I'd say base it off of the azerbaijani sitenotice, and if you have multiple
social media presences include them like the indonesian sitenotice's to
remain platform agnostic but avoid the larger kick in the page.

Certainly agree with you Craig. I just generally wasn't aware of those
examples which do set a precedent.

I will add documenting all of the different community community uses of
SiteNotice to my list of things to do. :)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Rodrigo Padula-3
In reply to this post by Asaf Bartov-2
During the WLE an WLM 2015 we created and published some paid campaigns inside Facebook to reach more people and bring people from Facebook to our contest's pages inside Wikipedia.

IMHO that it's a good approach, but add a direct link inside wikipedia to commercial sites/social networks are not a good idea, mainly thinking about privacy, net neutrality and compatibility with our movement mission. In that way we are redirecting people from Wikipedia to external sites.

The other problem is, don't matter if we have 5.000 or 1.000.000 of likes in a Facebook page, to reach that public we always have to pay Facebook ads to increase reach.

The Facebook is always cutting post's reach to stimulate publishers to pay more money to reach more people.

Basically we reach more people and get more views and clicks adding USD$10,00 to a Facebook post than having a page with 100.000 likes.

Including, offer an option to promote paid ads only to people that liked your page and their friends.

So, it's getting hard to grow on Facebook in a organic way, don't matter how many likes or friends do you have.

The Macedonian community has also had success attracting attention to their
social media channels via Facebook etc. links on sitenotice for a while. I
believe they reached a staggering number of likes (~35000 was it?), from
next to nothing. Those social media channels seem to have been used to
considerable effect in drawing attention and attracting contributors to
events like WLM.

This was discussed at the Wikimedia Central and Eastern European Meeting
2014. Notes from that session are still on Etherpad[1].

&gt; &gt; Hello Rodrigo,
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; on Bulgarian Wikipedia we put a text asking readers to like our Facebook
&gt; &gt; page, our Twitter and Google+ accounts, as well to visit our blog [1].
&gt; The
&gt; &gt; Facebook likes went up from 1923 to 5381 in a month, 126 people followed
&gt; us
&gt; &gt; on Twitter (virtually nobody did it before that), 123 people followed us
&gt; on
&gt; &gt; Google+ and the reader numbers on our blog went significantly up (I don't
&gt; &gt; have the data right now). Nobody in the community objected to this and we
&gt; &gt; would probably do it again some day. We decided to remove it after a
&gt; month,
&gt; &gt; because we saw that the number of new likes declined over time.

&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; The general idea is to bring more people from Facebook to access
&gt; &gt; Wikipedia
&gt; &gt; &gt; through our Facebook page, but what we are doing is redirecting users
&gt; &gt; from
&gt; &gt; &gt; pt.wikipedia to Facebook and including a free Facebook ads on
&gt; &gt; pt.wikipedia.
&gt; &gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; &gt; I would like to know if it is ok for the Wikimedia Movement and if this
&gt; &gt; &gt; kind of Facebook promotional campaign was proposed and published in
&gt; other
&gt; &gt; &gt; wikipedias/wikimedia projects.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

Chico Venancio
Rodrigo,

I really don't mean to be negative, but the appropriate forum to discuss
the merits of the decision is in the topic open in wikipt about it. About
the form, using sitenotice for external social media reach, I can see a
reasoning to debate this here, but discussing if it is/will be effective
seems out place. This decision should be, and seemly will continue to be, a
community decision.
Excuse-me if I read too much into the message.

Best regards,
Chico Venancio

Hello Chico,

The mail goal of that discussion is to see similar cases around the globe and evaluate the potential impact on the Wikimedia projects.

That info is very important for future proposals and initiatives like that one proposed on pt.wiki.

After so many discussion and comments regarding Facebook and #freebasics, that discussion is relevant and very important for the Wikimedia Movement, IMHO!
