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.

What's a social media surgery?

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.

Who's involved in the Manchester social media surgeries?

manchestersms is kindly hosted at the offices of Macc. Macc support voluntary and community groups in the city of Manchester to build their skills and knowledge to grow an active sector.

People helping at the surgery are all volunteers giving up their time. (If we don't have enough surgeons for the day we will need to cancel the surgery and will let you know.)

Can I help at these surgeries?

By all means! If you'd like to help, just sign up and we will be in touch.
