Social Media Surgery

Do you need a hand in learning social media and web basics, like posting photos on Facebook, writing a tweet, or updating your blog? 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? Or maybe you’re a social media pro yourself, and want to share your experience with others?

This month we’re doing something a bit different: a social media surgery. Started in the UK, the basic idea of a social media surgery is that it’s an informal event where anyone in the community with questions about how to use social media (“patients”) can come and sit down with someone who is more experienced in that area (“surgeons”, aka “doctors” as we would say) and get friendly, personal advice.

The event will run as a drop in. Stay for 20 minutes or stay for the full 2 hours. We’ll have refreshments on hand.

On hand to help answer your questions will be several of the NetSquared Victoria team who have experience using platforms and tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, Bit.ly, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr, WordPress, NationBuilder, and Google Apps.

Surgeons so far:
– Karl Hardin – Nationbuilder
– Susan Johnstone – Twitter / Tweetdeck
– Lyndsey Easton – Email Campaigns
– Scott Towne – WordPress

more to come ….

Let us know if you want to see anything specifically or want to host a surgery station.
