#YorkSMS in December

The idea for #YorkSMS began on – where else – Twitter! The idea is to hold a Social Media Surgery for York in December. Below you can find out what happens at these surgeries. This information has been paraphrased from the Social Media Surgery page on Paradise Circus.

What happens at these surgeries?

Volunteers will offer to show voluntary and community groups in the city how you can make best use of social media. It doesn’t matter if you are the head of communications at a major charity or an active citizen in your neighbourhood, if you’re at all curious come along.

No boring speeches, no jargon.

Tools like blogs, podcasts, video and social networks can give a real boost to campaigning organisations, often for no or little cost. So these experts are offering you approachable one-to-one help and support because they believe it can help. You may just want to see what is possible and go away and think about it. You might be itching to set up a blog and start using it.

Perhaps you think video might help you tell your story but don’t know where to start? All is possible. There’ll be no lectures, just people with knowledge, ideas and a passion to help you make best use of the internet for your organisation.
