A bit more about Social Media Surgeries:
PODNOSH and volunteers are offering social media help to voluntary organisations, community groups, charities, clubs, BCC, WMP and WMFS staff, as well as societies in a relaxed, informal setting.
No boring speeches, no jargon.
Tools like blogs, podcasts, video and social networks can give a real boost to campaigning organisations, often for no or little cost. So these experts are offering you approachable one-to-one help and support because they believe it can help. You might just want to see what is possible and go away and think about it. You might be itching to set up a blog and start using it. Perhaps you think video might help you tell your story but don’t know where to start? All is possible.
There’ll be no lectures, just people with knowledge, ideas and a passion to help you make best use of the internet for your group or organisation.
If you’re coming along to offer some help don’t forget your laptop!
