Surgeries are for people involved in community activities, social enterprises or charities and are provided free by friendly volunteer surgeons, including Nick Booth (Podnosh).
A social media surgery is an informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. Surgeries are deliberately relaxed. No presentations, no jargon, no-one telling people what they think they should know.
Instead you will sit next to someone who understands good ways to use the internet, who will listen to what you do, and then help you use free, useful tools.
They can help you set up and develop your blog, Facebook page or Twitter account. Also you can get help with understanding what your organisation does with data or help you accessing and using public open data. Or you can just come and work on your own, with access to help if you need it.
Surgeries take place in the Loco Lounge at 32-34 Kings Heath High St (Buses – 11a, 11c, 27, 35, 50, 69, 76). It’s a drop in, so feel free to turn up when it suits you, although we do finish at 7pm. By the way we’ve responded to requests for a choice of days of the week.
Please sign up here and please mention to others who might be interested.
We’re always pleased to hear your suggestions and comments.
