Social Media Surgery: Hands on social media advice & help

Do you need a hand in learning social media basics, like posting photos on Facebook or writing a tweet? Or maybe you have questions about how to track the clicks on your links, or use Facebook Insights? Or maybe you want to chat with someone about your social media strategy? 

Then join us this month for Social Media Surgery! Social Media Surgery is an informal event where anyone in the community (aka the "patients") can ask seasoned professionals (aka the "surgeons") about how to use social media and get friendly, personal advice.

Anyone else who feels they have knowledge to share as a “surgeon” is also welcome and highly encouraged to attend. And because of the nature of the event, you never know what you might end up learning from one of the other participants!
