This month we asked our Joomla Global Platinum Sponsors some questions about what attracted them to the project as supporters at this level, and how they felt in regards to the project itself, the community, and the benefits of being a Joomla Sponsor. We also wanted to get to know them better and get a better understanding of how they are connected to Joomla, and learn more about the services they offer.

Here is an easy and fun way for you to share your feelings about Joomla! with the rest of the community: Simply write a haiku about Joomla! below in the comments area of this month's page.

Social media is no longer just an option for companies looking to penetrate a tech savvy or youthful audience, it has become an irreplaceable tool utilized to market brands and ideas of every size, industry, and purpose. With this cultural shift towards accepting social media as an integral part of everyday life, and oftentimes everyday marketing, businesses are sometimes left wondering how to build a necessary bridge between their brand, website, and social presence. The process of creating what I'll refer to as a "socially friendly" website should not be considered a possibility to be explored, but instead must be understood as essential to a site's success in modern day marketing practices. In this article, I'd like to share a few tips which will lead every site you create (whether it's for your own business or a client) toward being socially engaging and positioned for success.

Настільки нове, що поки що немає зразків, щоб подивитися, як же це використовувати на практиці.
