Social Media surgery next Tuesday 25th at Launceston Library - and a Tweetathon

Next week is social media week - designed to encourage people to take a step to becoming more engaged online. As part of the week, Cornwall Council will be holding four drop-in surgeries including one in Launceston next Tuesday. There is also to be a 'tweetathon' next Thursday.

What is a social media surgery?

It's a chance for you to come along to learn more on a one-to-one basis about the different forms of social media. The fact that you're reading this blogpost probably means that you already have something of a handle on online communication. But if you would like to know more about Twitter, Facebook or online videos then this session could help. There will be help from some of Cornwall Council's social media experts (oh, and me).

Social media can help voluntary groups, businesses and individuals to better connect with clients, members and customers. The surgery will give you a few ideas to see whether there is an advantage for you.

The surgery takes place in the library next Tuesday (25th) from 5-7pm. It's completely free and everyone is welcome.

Also next week, Cornwall Council will be running a 'tweetathon'. This will try to promote the range of services that your local council provides. You can follow tweets from around the country using the hashtag #ourday or just those from Cornwall by using #CCday. If you don't know what hashtags are then you probably need to come to the library on Tuesday 25th!
