        Could I suggest that experts in the field run mega social media surgeries on how to run social media surgeries? With just this small change, the multiplier effect would be significant.

        Fairly easy to set up but generate so much buzz in a community. The social media surgeries website makes organising simple. Alway happy to share the little I know about social media with others

        Our Take Part Pathfinder in the Black Country is going to run social media awareness sessions open to all, to explain how social media is used and help people understand why it may be useful to them. We will also train people to run social media surgeries - I'd like to run surgeries and facilitate promotion of community stories to a range of stakeholders through social media

        I know these are generally run as community events, but I've heard quite a few people in government say they would welcome surgeries too. Or maybe mixed community-council events? Would that work to help build relationships? Tech puzzlement is great neutral ground ...

        Already happening in a few places, these are free events where people can drop-in to find out about social media and how it can help their community, group, campaign or organisation. Social media offers great opportunities for networking, sharing stories and mutual support.
