Dear all,

Just a gentle reminder for today's IRC on Social Media pilot at 8:00 p.m (IST). You can join the meetup by clicking on this link: . Enter a nickname and channel name is #wikimedia-office.

Since there is another IRC scheduled at 9:00 p.m for Wiki Loves Monuments in India, we'll try and wrap this up by sharp 9:00 p.m. We'll be discussing the progress on the already active social media groups (English and Odia), explaining strategies to start it on new groups, discussing ways to retain new editors. For those of you who may not have been following this discussion, here's the link to the Social Media pilot that we are running on Facebook right now. Here's the link to the blog post on the Social Media pilot.

Since this has been a collaborative process, I would urge all the mentors (existing editors who are helping out on Facebook) to attend the IRC. Your inputs and suggestions would be really helpful in deciding the course of action further.

See you there!
