SOCIAL MEDIA SURGERY

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?

Welcome to Social Media!

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 events are part of Cardiff Local Social Media Surgeries Initiated by Wales Online & Guardian Cardiff. Hosted by Chapter Arts Centre. Photo: CantonSMS
