Social Media Surgery

Are you flummoxed by Facebook, can't work out what everyone's Tweeting about, or have fallen off a blog? If so, plan to attend one of the Vermont Digital Economy Project's upcoming Social Media Surgeries. At this hands on, action oriented workshop, there will be volunteer “surgeons” who can explain things, show you how to get started, unstick you if you‘re stuck, or just help you think through why you might use any of these social media tools in the first place.
Is your organization in need of a social media makeover? Don’t worry about it for another moment. Join us at a “Social Media Surgery” results-oriented workshop near you. Register now.  For more information visit
