With the adaptation of the use of HootSuite, all of our Social Media Team members (SMT) have access to post on all of our platforms. While each platform has a team member/s specifically monitoring them, we have been utilizing the time and work savings of HootSuite to be able to schedule regular news posts. This responsibility is shared with all of the team rather than each post taking time from everyone.

Remember social media happens every day and our hard working team do their best to keep on top of things while also taking care of their own work and lives. If you see something to be shared or not right, drop a friendly note or tag us. We’re dancing as fast as we can.

Hilf uns - Hilf DIR!

  1. Help us see your Joomla content by tagging Joomla
  2. If you have a special event happening contact us and be sure to take photos of your event and supply text of what you want covered (you know your message best). This will allow us to post about your event on our channels.
  3. Have a group of posts you want to schedule for your team? Contact Alison and learn how to make it happen. We can set you up with our template to do your graphics.
  4. Did I mention TAG JOOMLA! We want to share your Joomla events out on our channels to show the world all the great things going on within the Joomla community.

Das Joomla! Social Media Team

The Joomla Social Media Team consists of:

  1. Hans van der Meer - Team Leiter
  2. Alison Meeks - Team Leiter Asisstent
  3. Sandra Decoux
  4. Giovanni Genovino

Graphics for the Joomla posts if not included within the attached article or supplied by the team requesting the posts, are done by Sandra Decoux and Alison Meeks with the image support of our partner 123RF. Graphics for social are done both in horizontal format as recommended by FB/Tw/LinkedIn but also square for Instagram. Shout out thanks to the video team of Sandra and Brian Teeman who have been creating various videos for various special events for use on our social platforms.


  1. We promote the features and benefits of Joomla! to a worldwide audience of enthusiasts.
  2. The SMT schedule regular posts via HootSuite and as well use it for news posts. Some days there is more news than others. We try to balance it out rather than flooding feeds.
  3. We strictly avoid controversial links, particularly those which involve Joomla! governance or community politics.
  4. Absolute priority is given to Joomla! Releases. Especially in the event of a security or new version release.
  5. We normally avoid mention of products or services developed by companies in the Joomla! Community that are not direct partners or sponsors.
  6. We do highlight events and teams in the community. Some of those are Certification, Showcase, JED, Open Source Friday’s, and volunteers.
  7. We coordinate our work with Joomla's release schedule and the marketing and communications needs of the project as a whole.

Moderation Leitsätze

  1. The Joomla! Volunteer Code of Conduct fully applies to the Joomla! Community gathered on Social Media. Users must conform their behaviour accordingly. At no time will any of our team tolerate harassment or attacks.
  2. Links should posted with the best pictures and images pulled via metadata, if any. Click-through metrics are significantly higher for posts which contain an image.
  3. We direct Social Media participants to ask support questions about Joomla! at the Joomla! Forum or other Joomla support groups located around the web. The official Joomla support is the forum and we always provide a link to it. We do not provide support via any social platforms.
