What is a Social Media Surgery?

The surgeries are organised by volunteer members of the informal Birmingham Bloggers group. We promise friendly advice and all the surgeons are not getting paid to provide the help.

Surgeries work as informal one-to-one advice to help you make the best of social media. Everyone is invited, whether you’re the head of communications at a major charity, an active citizen in your neighbourhood, or just curious.

Want to know more about Social Media Surgeries and what to expect? You can find out more information about what goes on at a surgery and how it can benefit you here.

If you cannot make September’s surgery why not book the next Central Birmingham surgery into your diary. It will be held on Friday 20 November at 5.30pm – 7pm at the Fazeley Studios, Digbeth.
