Roath Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

Do you have a story to tell about your community? Or a local concern you want to voice? Perhaps you belong to a community group wanting to promote activities and events online, share photos, videos and information?

Free websites (often called Social Media) like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and blogs can help you or your group reach a wider audience via the Internet.

Have you heard of Social Media but are unsure how it all works? Or how it can benefit you or your group? Come and see our Social Media Surgeons. We can help you or your community group get started.

Relaxed, informal, free and as non-technical as you need!

Also, if you or your community group are already blogging, tweeting and sharing online but want to gain more confidence, come along and our Social Media Surgeons can help you to be more effective.

Our surgery events are usually held at Pear Tree, Wellfield Road, Roath, CF24 3PE.

Wifi is free at the venue. The venue is being provided free, so please do buy a pint/coffee to say thank you. We'll be in the upstairs bit of the Pear Tree, and there will be power sockets if you're bringing a laptop (you don't have to bring one, our surgeons will have one to point at with you).

This event is a local Cardiff Social Media Surgery, and was originally set up by WalesOnline & guardiancardiff.
