Abstract

Wikipedia Fan page in Facebook got amazingly 5 million subscribers. However, if we compare the other Wikimedia Movement related brands, the second tier is dropped to less then 50 thousand fans less. Even though a lot of dedicated Wikimedians (including active participants of chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups) around the globe has established at least hundreds of fan pages or groups, but those passionate pages are generally lacks of planning or training to make those pages to improve their story-telling skills. If we want to increase the editors and readers of Wikimedia projects, then to discuss a useful guidelines or toolkit for promoters of our movement is very essentials. We should discuss on how can we use the social media in this panel.
