[CentOS] New CentOS/RHEL group on Facebook

There are currently two competing CentOS groups on Facebook. The "main"
group is managed by a small group of autocrats with very unilateral
communication skills. The other one is not managed at all, judged by the
amount of non-CentOS-related stuff published there (Ubuntu tutorials,
Windows games, cheap Ray-Ban sunglasses).

I was a bit frustrated by this state of things, the more so since I've
successfully managed the Slackware Linux Facebook group for a couple of
years, regulating publications, keeping folks on topic and banning the
odd spammer.

So I decided to do the same thing I would do in a software development
context. Fork the project and create a different CentOS/RHEL Facebook
group. The goal of this group would simply be to provide a no-nonsense
discussion platform for all the CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux
users out there. Publications would be strictly CentOS/RHEL-centered,
but on the other hand, you'd be free to share your CentOS-related blog
posts, tutorials and documentation without getting flamed or banned by
an admin.

Anyway, feel free to join the new group:
