There is an issue that affects CWG quite closely in that there are many
uses of the OpenStreetMap name in various forms on most social networks.
Only some of these groups/communities/pages are operated by CWG, and the
identity of the people operating the others isn't always clear.

We need to leave enough latitude for a local group/chapter to be able to
self-organise their social media use, but still have an idea who is
doing what.
