• Are you ‘Facebooked out?!’ Need help with your account?
• Do you want to know what everyone is twittering on about?
• Have you already got a wordpress account and have specific questions for us?
• Do you want to use video or pictures on the web to raise the awareness of your group or cause?
“Your place is free! Come and bring any social media questions and our volunteers and social media experts will help you out!”
