It had become difficult for EA'ers to find the right places to discuss their interests after many new groups were created within a few years (whether spontaneous or formal). Likewise, people with new projects or ideas have to be able to target groups easily whose members could be interested (there is a higher risk of spammy identical posts now – please give any ideas on how to reduce this).
The EA Groups Directory is designed to create a simple overview for them. It is continuously updated by the page admins mentioned above. The group links are also copied now-and-then to an EAWiki page and reformatted (with massive time lag).
Now-and-then, we post about new groups or interesting conferences or campaigns related to groups.
Page reach optimisation
Another area that we're exploring is a list of EA Facebook pages with buttons to like or unfollow them. This depends on international EA'ers spending a few minutes each to help each other out. It has potential to moderately aid pages' reach with a day's work, if done right. The extra likes may improve the social status of small pages but the effect on engagement is limited. It is possible that unfollowing pages that you're not interested in may boost their Newsfeed reach.
Once you’ve found a project you're interested in, our Slackis the place to go to get more involved. Here you can speak to the people currently working on the project and find out how you can contribute. Ask for an invite to Slack here.
