I hope this report finds you well!
This is the first Visibility Report for the New Year 2019 and the 4th one created by me.
This report is for contributions during the time frame 10 January until 17 January 2019.
The past few months, the contributions have decreased, however there are some actions we can do for increasing Visibility Contributions and Task Requests. I will be presenting my ideas and thoughts with a series of posts starting next week.
If you would like to contribute feel free to contact me directly at discord katerinaramm#7862 or on facebook

|----||----||----||Average Score for Week 3||47|
The average of the contributions is 47
During the previous week, there was one contributor, @jingis07
@jingis07 has promoted two very well known & familiar projects via his facebook page. @byteball (recently rebranded as @obyte) and @actifit. I am copying here some of my review remarks, thinking they will be useful for current and future contributions.
I sincerely hope that we can have constructive discussions in order to expand the real-world adoption to open-source projects!
Please read here below some of my remarks to this weeks facebook ads by @jingis07
When submitting a post regarding a facebook, ad you could think about adding some of the information below. These aim to show your strategy, to offer valuable insights to the readers.
Have you visited the website of the project?
Have you used this project at all?
Have you visited their social media channels?
Have you discussed with them?
Why did you select the specific audience? That would be interesting to know.
Do you know if the Project Owner runs an ad during the same time? Do you know where they would like to promote their project?
Ad Message and Call To Action
How and Why did you use the specific text? What is your Call to Action?
Do you think that there is anything you could/should change or add?
Why did you select this graphic and where did you find it?
Was there any interest for the product? Did anyone contact you about it? Did the ad receive likes, shares, comments?
Goal / Conversions
What are your goals with this ad? Do you think it was a successful ad? Would you be interested to know if there were any conversions? What would a successful conversion be considered according to you or to the Project Owner?
After the ad finished, would you think of promoting the same project again? In what way? Would you consider contacting the P.O for a future promotion?
Having expressed the above in the form of questions, I sincerely hope that there will be more information shared with us and with potential Project Owners in the future posts.

|What is Utopian?||What is the Visibility Category?|
|Utopian is a Social Platform, aiming to empower professionals for contributing to the Open Source Movement.||The Visibility Category aims to shed more light to the whitelisted Open Source Projects and to attract the general attention of end users around the world.|
|As stated at the website, Open Source is free, common property and developed by volunteers around the world and available for everyone.||Contributions in the visibility category are (1) paid search engine and display ads placement; (2) paid social media ads; (3) posts to social media accounts with at least 10,000 unique followers.|
|Open Source Software often runs in our computer, phone or tablet and its development relies on collective intelligence. All this work is done by the developers for free! Utopian educates, motivates and rewards everyone who contributes to Open Source Projects, provided that certain guidelines are being met.||You can click here and select Visibility to read the current guidelines (new ones are being worked upon as we speak). If you have a Facebook page or are very active with a large follow on social media platforms, feel free to take a look and contact me about how you could contribute!|
