Giving people the confidence to start using social media for good

A social media surgery is an informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. Surgeries are deliberately relaxed. There are no presentations, no jargon, and no lectures.

the problem
Nature and Context

Having people experiment with social media tools and learn from each other in situations like social surgeries can help people feel more confident in their uses of social platforms for humanitarian causes, business needs and more. A surgery would be led by local volunteers – the surgeons – who understand good ways to use the internet, listen to what people want to do, and recommend useful free tools they could use.
