New Gwibber User Guide makes mastering social networking in Ubuntu easy

Gwibber is Ubuntu’s default social networking client and boasts a powerful set of features for tweeting, denting and micro-blogging your life –  but are you aware of everything that it can do?

Step forward the irrepressibly awesome Vancouver LoCo team have put together a user-friendly and easily ‘accessible user guide’ on Gwibber and its features.

Amongst various topics in the guide you can learn…

  • What Gwibber is and what it can do
  • Using the Gwibber interface to reply, update and like posts
  • Add accounts for Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, more
  • Customize Gwibber’s interface
  • Filtering your user stream

Why the need for a guide?

Using Ubuntu is like opening the cupboard door to Narnia: the breadth and possibilities available to you are seemingly endless. Sometimes this choice can be intimidating. Part of getting orientated in this new landscape comes from being ‘informed’ – and, lets be honest, dry, technical ‘help’ manuals just don’t cut it.

The Vancouver LoCo decided to address this by creating fun, engaging and easily-accessible guides that anyone will find useful to read.

First on their list was Gwibber.

“We think social networking should be an enjoyable part of your life, not a micro­management nightmare.”

Continuing: “…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.”
