Hi @kaldari: A response from the Foundation was shared on this in January via Wikimedia-l (here is the archived message). Discussions about the Foundation's presence on Mastodon are ongoing. We invite you to share thoughts and questions on our talk page.

Hi all! I am back here to clear up any confusion around my earlier comment, as I saw the note from @Legoktm on Wikimedia-l. The document I am referencing includes an exploration of Mastodon's outreach value for engaging public audiences and is drafted purely from that lens. It does not take a position on the technical side, which is not my expertise, or address the issue of the Foundation setting up an instance. It is intended to help staff better understand Mastodon in the context of their goals to reach key audiences. Our social media accounts are primarily used to advance our movement goals such as pushing better understanding of Wikipedia, getting people to join community initiatives like edit-a-thons, and sharing things like the winners of Wiki Loves Earth. They are also an important avenue to invite new people to engage with our movement. We did some exploring to determine the current ability of Mastodon to help us with these goals. We are constantly reviewing with new information so we can update and respond to a regularly evolving situation. My offer is still open to engage on this outreach piece via email (talktocomms@wikimedia.org), so please feel free to reach out.

Hi @kaldari and @Aklapper: I am re-sharing my comment from a WMF account, as requested: @CKoerner_WMF kindly shared this task with me. My team at the Foundation is responsible for managing the Foundation and English Wikipedia social media channels, so we care about this conversation and would need to be involved in any decisions around the public presence of these brands on other platforms. We have also been closely following the situation with Twitter and exploring Mastodon. In fact, we have developed an overview of our findings and recommendations as an internal staff resource that I can share with you. To continue this conversation, could you please reach out to talktocomms@wikimedia.org with your request(s) (to ensure Department visibility), and I will follow up there? Thank you! - Lauren Dickinson

In a follow up to your comment: The resource that we created is intended as a resource for Foundation staff (it is not public). If there are aspects of the document that you think would be useful to share with a wider audience, let's discuss. Can you please email talktocomms@wikimedia.org with the specifics of what you are interested in? Thanks!

Yes, thanks, @SNowick_WMF and all! We're still getting solid media interest on these stats and sharing on social media, so it would be great to update the data soon. Let us know if there's any way we can help + when you expect the new data to be available.

Hi, @jbond, @Aklapper, @RhinosF1, and @Varnent: This is my Wikimedia account. My username orginally was LDickinson (WMF), but MediaWiki required me to remove the parentheses and the space. I added this account as a subscriber to this task, but I don't know how to change the task creator (from Lookd_Up to LDickinsonWMF).
