Manchester Social Media Surgeries

Surgeons in action at MediaCity Social Media Surgery

Questions. Answers. Cups of tea. And biscuits...

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.

What the patients say...

Here are some of our recent patients and surgeons explaining what they've got out of coming to a social media sugery. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences...

Our next few surgeries...

We run regular surgeries at Macc, central Manchester, and at the BBC's Digi-Den in MediaCityUK. We have also run surgeries at Salford Lads' Club and Z-Arts in Hulme, and the 2012 Cooperatives Congress.
