Social Media Surgeries

1 Comment so far. We'd love to know what you think.

Last Thursday I went along to a social media surgery I set up for local residents & community groups. The aim is to create awarness about using social media sites and to get more people blogging. This provides a really good opportunity to have a say in your local neighbourhood and share good news stories.

I was so impressed with the turn out and interest. We had a mix of people some with IT skills other who have never even turned a computer on. So if any of them by the end of the sessions have a blog then that will be amazing progress. Always good to try new things so if you’re interested then come along.

During local democracy week from the 11th Oct we will be having a “Handsworth Big Blog Conversation” where we encourage as manay people as possible to blog about Handsworth and visit the Hands on Handsworth Blog!

Handsworth Big Blog Conversation– Social Meida Surgery open free session will be held on Thursday 14th Oct at 7pm until 9pm at Sports Hall, King Edward Grammer School, Rosehill Rd, Handsworth, please use Hall Rd entrance.

Here is an example of the first blog started on the night well done to Daisy from WHC.
