Location: MadLab
Description: Free monthly gatherings for social changemakers and web innovators to network, socialise and share ideas about how nonprofits and social benefit organisations can use the social web for social change.
Start Time: 18:30

End Time: 21:00

Bring your social media problems and insights to a round table event. Discuss how to get the best out of Twitter, the ups and downs of Facebook, share blogging tips, discover what has and hasn’t worked for others and share your experiences.

After such a lively discussion around the Save Levenshulme Baths campaign, we thought the timing might be right to turn the spotlight on how we all use social media in our campaigns, projects and organisations.

A ’round table’ format means we’ll not be hosting an invited speaker and instead make space for everyone to ask questions, contribute solutions and share best practice in social media.

There should be something for everyone wherever you are on the social media learning curve.

Did Facebook save Levenshulme Baths?

Of course it didn’t!  But, as we take a focus on community campaigning using social media and online tools, we will be joined by campaigners from Save Levenshulme Baths.

This campaign was recently successful in overturning plans to close a facility much-valued by the local community.  But what role – of any – did social media play in this?

We will also get some input from the Save Whalley Range Treescampaign – another recent successful grassroots campaign

Finally, the people from ipadio will tell us how charities and non-profits are starting campaigns by just making a phone call.  Technology eh!

This should be a great meetup – will be really great to hear from a local community voice.  Whether web technology has anything to do with it, will be an interesting discussion.

Swimming costumes are optional!

This month’s Net Tuesday is about the photo sharing website Flickr and how you can use it raise awareness of your work and connect with other people.

David Govier from the Greater Manchester County Record Office will talk about how Manchester Archives has used Flickr and social networking services such as Twitter to raise awareness of their work, and how this has changed the way they think about engaging with their users.

Alan Holding from Manchester Digital Development Agency will give a general introduction to Flickr and show some interesting things you can do with it.

You’ll also get to see lots of interesting images of Manchester, and contribute to ideas on putting the Archives online.

Our meetup this month will also be shared with the Open Data Manchester group – so expect to meet lots of interesting and interested new faces!

Manchester Net Tuesday is a group that meets to focus on the use of the web by social change organisations.

Generally this means how community organisations, charities and other non-profits can utilise the web, and specifically social media, for their cause.

We hope that Net Tuesday can be a meeting space for those involved in non-profit, those in technology and of course, those in both camps!
