Social Media Surgeries
Cornwall Council is taking part in a national social media campaign between the 24th and 28th September at various locations around Cornwall. Sadly, it is not being held in that many places. But the reason for this is these are ‘testing-the-water’ events. As if successful, they will be held on a more regular basis and more inclusive locations
I feel like I am preaching to the converted, as if you are reading this, you are probably proficient in the use of social media. However, I am sure we all have friends and family who runaway screaming when you mention social media. This might be through choice, but in a lot of cases it is not.
Social media can be a powerful tool, and is becoming an everyday part of life with the likes of blogs, Facebook, and Twitter. The Government has recently made it easier for ‘citizen journalist’ to get access to council meetings and report directly from them. Social media is also a good way to keep people and groups informed. I know I can get an important message out very quickly via social media.
The aim of the surgeries is to introduce people to social media. These will be held in four locations and they are being held at:
- Monday, September 24, Wadebridge Library 5-7pm
- Tuesday, September 25, Launceston Library 5-7pm
- Wednesday, September 26, St Austell Library 5-7pm
- Friday, September 28, Helston Library, 12-2pm
