Gwibber's Fun New User Guide: "Master Your Social Networking with Gwibber"
Contact: Randall Ross


This is a story about what happens when an Ubuntu local community meets
great software and decides to help popularize it.

Gwibber. It's one of the gems that makes Ubuntu shine. If you're an avid
Ubuntu contributor chances are that's something you already know. Maybe
you even use it regularly. However, there are many new Ubuntu users and
even some experienced ones who have yet to experience and enjoy Gwibber.
What's holding them back?

The Ubuntu Vancouver Local Community believes that one barrier to the
widespread adoption of Ubuntu's collection of outstanding software is a
shortage of well-written and accessible user guides. The kind of guides
that give a person reading it a sense of "Hey, this is pretty cool!" or
"Wow, I didn't know Gwibber could do that!", or even "This is much
easier than I thought".

So, back in the autumn of 2010, we set out to create the first guide to
Gwibber on Ubuntu. After many months of effort, I am happy to announce
that our first version of "Master Social Networking with Gwibber" is
complete and ready for your enjoyment.

>From the guide: "It is impossible to read all the updates that we
receive through all our networks... With Gwibber, we hope to help you
gain control of your network so you can make it meaningful and relevant
to you... We think social networking should be an enjoyable part of your
life, not a micro­management nightmare."

Grab a copy at,
give it a read, and share it with your friends. They will thank you, and
Ubuntu will grow!
