There are currently two competing CentOS groups on Facebook. The “main”
group is managed by a small group of autocrats with very unilateral communication skills. The other one is not managed at all, judged by the amount of non-CentOS-related stuff published there (Ubuntu tutorials, Windows games, cheap Ray-Ban sunglasses).
I was a bit frustrated by this state of things, the more so since I’ve successfully managed the Slackware Linux Facebook group for a couple of years, regulating publications, keeping folks on topic and banning the odd spammer.
So I decided to do the same thing I would do in a software development context. Fork the project and create a different CentOS/RHEL Facebook group. The goal of this group would simply be to provide a no-nonsense discussion platform for all the CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux users out there. Publications would be strictly CentOS/RHEL-centered, but on the other hand, you’d be free to share your CentOS-related blog posts, tutorials and documentation without getting flamed or banned by an admin.
Anyway, feel free to join the new group:
