I hope you are all very well!
This is the third Visibility Report for the New Year 2019 and the 6th one created by me.
This report is for contributions during the time frame 31 January until 7 February 2019.
We are having one contributor who is steadily posting about his promotions via facebook. He has expressed a great interest in promoting Open Source in his Country and I am happy to see the improvements to the ads created and promoted!
This week we witnessed an impressive increase to the score and there are plans for increasing the contributors for this category (please see below)
Ways of Contributing to the Category
- If you have a Facebook page or twitter account, you can promote whitelisted open source projects via promoted/paid posts.
- If you have social media pages with more than 10.000 followers, you can write about open source projects and promote them to your followers.
- Paid search engine and display ads placement
- Follow @utopian-io to be informed if there is a task request for promoting an open source product

|----||----||----||Average Score for Week 6||62.83|
The average of the contributions is 62.83 (a good 20% from last Weekly Report, that had an average score of 52.5)
During the previous week, there was one contributor, @jingis07
@jingis07 has promoted 3 open source projects via his facebook page.
(.) fixmystreet - Users can Report, view, or discuss local problems, like graffiti, fly tipping, broken paving slabs, or street lighting! Available in the UK and for other countries [I was so impressed by this, I am thinking of how this could be used in my country ....! If you have any ideas let me know please]
(.) moodle - A Very Popular Learning Platform with more than 14 million registered users
(.) ballerina - A compiled, transactional, statically and strongly typed programming language with textual and graphical syntaxes.
In all cases there was more than 10.000 reach to the promotions. No interaction was sent to the page, however brand awareness and exposure to the users is something that cannot be ignored.
This week it was evident that the user has devoted more time in investigating about the projects and in preparing the reports.

Next Moves for the Visibility Category
I have talked to some people about the Visibility Category and some of the replies were:
"I plan to start contributing when the steem price increases"
I do not wish to comment further on the above, however I wish to say that I plan to reach out to individuals and to companies who are already on steem and help them get on board.
Either by helping them create a Facebook / twitter ad or by helping them choose a project and promote it via their social media networks. (there are users who have thousands of followers in a variety of social media channels.)
This will hopefully create interest to the Project Owners and help them see a fitting community with marketers and influencers all around. Then more task requests can be created!
I would love to know your thoughts on the above!
