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.

Social Media Surgeries are completely free advice sessions for people from community and voluntary groups, clubs and societies. In Dudley borough they are hosted by a team of social media enthusiasts.

Would you like to know how to use blogs, video clips, photo sharing sites, Facebook, Twitter or other free web tools to help your group? Do you want to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate online? We can help you do it easily and for free.

Come and meet people who understand all about social media and how you can get the most out of it. You might have specific questions that you’d like to ask, or you might just like a general introduction to what’s available. You don’t need any previous knowledge to take part, and there won’t be any lectures. We’ll talk to you one-to-one, listen to what you need and explain things clearly. Perhaps when you have learnt something new you can come back and return the favour.

Social Media Surgeries take place every month or so at different locations around Dudley borough.
