We're sorry to be stuffy and give you some terms and conditions. The main thing on our mind is we don't want anyone to copy socialmediasurgery.com, what it does, or how it does it. This is easy and shouldn't get in your way. If you use this website you are agreeing to our rules. If you don't agree to them, please don't use the website.

Acceptable use

  1. Don't be rude or defamatory.
  2. Respect copyright. Don't rip off other people's work without attribution.

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.

  2. Your email address will only be shown to the administrators of this website and the surgery manager of any surgery to sign up to attend. We will not share your email address with anyone else.

Volunteers are offering social media help to voluntary organisations, community groups, charities, clubs and 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.
