What is a surgery?

A social media surgery is an informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. Surgeries are deliberately relaxed. No presentations, no jargon, noone telling people what they think they should know.

Instead you will sit next to someone who understands good ways to use the internet, someone who will listen to what you do, and then show you free, useful tools. If you like what you see they can also help you set up your blog, Facebook page or Twitter account. Most social media surgeries have an event every few weeks, so you can keep coming back for help.

What is a surgeon?

You might prefer to think of them as helpers. A surgeon is someone who knows enough about using social media to help someone else. Some surgeons have spent years understanding the internet. Others started learning a few months ago but want to share what they know with other community groups and active citizens.

Need help?

    This session was just what we needed to start some extra ideas flowing. We're just getting started with social media strategy at the SLSA and we want to get it right. Thanks Ben Teoh, Petra Dzurovcinova and Rubina Carlson for bringing some great suggestions to the table.

    Hi Mark, not this will be a free event and it's our first so we're still in the planning stages. In terms of space, it would be great to have somewhere with individual rooms, but we could also use a larger room with individual tables.

    Hello, is there a charge for the Social Media Surgery events? How much space do you require and what times do the sessions usually run? Thanks, Mark
