Facebook vs Google+ for Perl projects
I guess the two dead-lines I have next week caused me to go in full procrastination mode and search for Perl based projects on Facebook and Google Plus. There is a similar, but newer listing for Perl developers on LinkedIN.
|DWIM Perl||1||6 (+6)|
|Enlightened Perl Organization (EPO)||10||32 (+34)|
|Padre, the Perl IDE||108||97 (+252)|
|The Perl Foundation (TPF)||1,059||97 (+104)|
|Perl||5,597||1 (just created)|
|Perl Developer||86 (group)||na|
|Perl Moderne (the French book)||12||na|
|Perl Mongers||28 (group)||na|
|Perl Monks||18+ 33||85 (+101)|
|Perl Weekly||140||672 (+716)|
There are a lot more likes on Facebook but the vast majority is on the Perl page which, I understood correctly is just and info page. No one really controls it.
The other big difference is The Perl Foundation page that gained a lot more likes on Facebook than on Google+.
I don't compare any of these with pages of PHP, Python and Ruby based projects, but if you do, you will see some of those projects having a lot more followers.
I wonder if I missed some big Perl based projects?
Perl Monger groups
There are a few individual Perl Monger groups that maintain a page on either Facebook or Google Plus or both.
|Perl Mongers||Google Plus|
|Italian Mongers: Perl.It||na||22 (+23)|
|Kiev.pm||17 (group)||22 (+23)|
|Utah Perl||na||7 (+8)|
I believe we could utilize these social networks, in order to reach more people.
Have I missed any project or any Perl Monger group?
Added Costa Rica and Cluj Perl Mongers and Delhi.pm.
