Looking for voluntary community page managers.
#Delphi #Community

Now that the G+ pages can have up to 50 managers, are there anyone that are interested in having a manager status for the +Delphi User Group and +Firemonkey User Group pages, and help provide content to the community?

I am looking at you, +Lennart Aasenden, for starters :)

Anyone else that like to curate and publish?

Welcome to the Google+ Firemonkey User Group

A suggestion for self-curating the Delphi content on Google+! Why? Because although we all are lovable developers, we can only handle that many photos, reshares and caturday gifs!

Using Google+ allows us to have a unified comment system, and a loosely coupled Delphi community where you can actually pick and chose among who you want to follow.

Here is how:
Step 1: Create your Google+ Delphi Page. With Google+ adding pages, we now can self-curate our content. This means that each of us can create our own Delphi page, which can be used to promote our blog posts, or our Delphi musings directly in the page stream. Note that we would need to refrain from posting caturday gifs, or reshares of the events of all world+dog on our Delphi page.

Step 2: From your Delphi Page, Follow the +Delphi User Group and/or +Firemonkey User Group pages. This will make your page visible to other Delphi users, assuming you also complete step 3.

Step 3: Ensure that you show in public on your Delphi page profile that you follow the page(s) above. This because a Google+ page will NOT show you as a follower, unless you follow it in public (see http://www.google.com/support/plus/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1047299).

Step 4: Pick the pages and/or users you want to follow from the User Group pages. As people publicly add (i.e. follow with) their Delphi pages, the user groups will automatically grow the list of available pages and visible for all.

Step 5: Enjoy a "spam free" Delphi circle!

Step 6: Optionally, reshare your old personal Delphi posts on your Delphi page.

The generic Delphi and Firemonkey user groups are just a start. Anybody can create their own topic-centric User Group page as well.

If you want to help grow the Delphi community:
Create your own Delphi page, and follow the User Groups!
