Manchester Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

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.)

Who are they for?

Surgeries are for people from Manchester's voluntary and community sector who have a specific social media issue they would like help with. (The sessions aren't formal social media training)

Can I help at these surgeries?

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