Hey again folks!
Fandom is holding another edition of The Downstream on Friday, September 10 at 11am EST.
This 2-hour event is held on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/Fandom and is a bit like a mini Community Connect 4 times a year. Fandom staff brief viewers on what is happening on Fandom, with the latest news and updates.
In this edition, guests include:
Joey Merkel, Director of Social Strategy & Operations, who will be presenting on how Fandom approaches social media and answering questions about how admins can manage social media accounts for their wikis.
Maggie Owens, Sr. Analyst - Site Analytics, who will be explaining how Fandom tracks traffic trends on the platform and connects them to external events, like how the Spider-Man trailer caused certain pages within different Marvel wikis to spike.
Max Spector, Director of Brand Design, who will be illustrating how the new logo came to be over the rebranding process, in particular where we went from Community Connect in March. Call it The Spector Cut of his original presentation.
There will also be an Ask Fandom Anything, in which some editors and admins have been given the opportunity to ask ther questions. Specials guests will be brought in with detailed, prepared answers ahead of time.
