Walsall Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

A social media surgery is a pretty informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. They are deliberately relaxed. You will get to sit alongside someone who understands good ways to use the internet and they'll show you useful free tools. If you like what you see they can help you set up your own.

Are you interested in using blogs, text messages, Facebook, Twitter and other free web sites to help a group or organisation that you belong to? Do you already have a web site for your organisation that is difficult or expensive to update? Are you looking for an easier way to promote your activities or to share information, photos and videos online? Walsall Social Media Surgery is a free advice session for community and voluntary groups, clubs, societies and small arts organisations. Come along to find out how you can use free web sites and services to organise activities, promote events, raise funds, collect feedback from your participants and keep a record of everything you do.

You'll get practical hands-on advice for putting social technology into action for your cause, to help you reach a wider audience and promote the good work you do. No boring speeches, no jargon. If you're at all curious, come along.
