Surgery Managers

This website is a place created by Podnosh for people to publicise, manage and monitor their own social media surgeries.

Your surgery manager is a good person and we don't expect them to do anything besides very social things. If you have a question about a surgery your first port of call is your surgery manager – after all it's their surgery, not ours.

If you have a problem with your surgery manager please contact us.

This website

This website is made by the people at Podnosh in Birmingham, UK.

We care about the "Social Media Surgery Plus" name and logo, the website's look and feel, our software code and scripts, and our social computing techniques and how we apply them to monitoring help given at social media surgeries. All these things are unique to Podnosh and are our property. You can use them only as follows:

You can use this site for free to publicise and manage one social media surgery to support local community groups, voluntary organisations, active citizens or charities.

If you want to use this site to run several surgeries – and monitor the help given and online activity as a result of sites created or assisted with at your surgeries – contact us.

These are informal gatherings where members of voluntary and community groups, active citizens and residents can learn how they can use the web and social media to help their organisations to work and communicate.

Feel free to drop by at any time that you can and we'll try to pair you up with one of our Social Media Surgeons - who are all ordinary people with knowledge and experience of using social media in a variety of ways.

These social media surgeries are funded through the Active Citizens Fund.
