WPShout Facebook Group
We’ve made a Facebook group. We’re not completely sure how it’ll work, and what’s allowed, but we’re really interested in seeing what more we can do with more frequent communication in a space that a whole bunch of people are already hanging out. So check it out and play along with us.
A Fairytale Ending: ReactJS Drops its Patent Clause
In a development that seems destined to silence doubters like me, ReactJS moved to relicense itself under the thoroughly open-source-friendly MIT license—dropping the “patent clause” that it had included for arguably sane reasons but that had caused WordPress to drop React for Gutenberg and Calypso, and for the Apache project to blacklist React as well.
Easy Social Sharing with AddToAny
The importance of social media to marketing success on the internet today is hard to understate. It basically is the avenue of marketing success on the internet.

(For real success you need more difficult things like engagement with and from your followers, etc.)
Advanced WordPress Facebook Group
If you asked me what single location on the internet hosts the liveliest conversation between WordPress developers, I’d point you to the Advanced WordPress Group on Facebook.

I tend to view Facebook as more personal and other sites such as Twitter more appropriate for both marketing the site and interacting with the people who read it.
