Soho Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

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.

Starting today, Andy has been shown me how to install whats called a plug-in to give us the stats on how many visits, what kind of things people looking at what things they search for, so it will be really really interesting! In fact, its something we should have done long ago, but today is the day!" Recorded on Wednesday 12 July 2017

I just could not get paragraph to translate appropriate to the top of page. Andy has shown me what sort of mashing up the text is happening and has given me a way of actually getting rid of problems so I can do I can get my cell phone so it's been absolutely brilliant 'casue I spend hours and hours trying to sort this and getting nowhere. So I think he's giving me the solution to that. I also picked up quite a few interesting things from what he was doing with Gail; just small details about controls on the keyboard and things that they do.
