Social media surgeries are informal drop-in sessions where anyone from the voluntary and community sector can come and pick the brains of our 'surgeons' (helpful volunteers who understand the world of Twitter, Facebook and the rest).
Speak to experts and get tips and practical advice about how social media could help your organisation.
Whether you're flummoxed by Facebook, can't work out what everyone's Twittering about, or have fallen off a blog, there'll be someone here who can explain things, show you how to get started, unstick you if you've got stuck, or just help you think through why you might use any of these social media tools in the first place.
It's completely free, there's tea and coffee on tap, and you can have a conversation rather than being stuck in a classroom.
Cumbriasms is kindly hosted by various organisations and businesses across Cumbria and supported by volunteers and AWAZ Cumbria (IT equipment).
People helping at the surgery are all volunteers giving up their time.
All our surgeons are volunteers giving up their time for nothing, and as such, most are unable to offer further unpaid support outside of the surgeries.
But that's exactly why the surgeries are held regularly around the Cumbria. You're most welcome to come back again and again, as often as you need to - or to bring along colleagues if you need to spread the social media goodness around your organisation...
Staff from the BBC volunteer with BBC Outreach to help. Other volunteers are also welcome - please sign up and we'll be in contact.
