Day three of (unofficial) Yorkshire Social Media Week

Sheffield Social Media Surgery - 3rd Feb 10

It’s Wednesday, so it must be Sheffield! (sorry United fans). The third Social Media Surgery on consecutive days in Yorkshire took place tonight in the Showroom Cinema, Sheffield. Another well-attended event, with lots of positive conversations. The fact that the Surgery was organised, by the indefatigable Jag Gill to run immediately before one of the regular Sheffield Geekup events meant that there was a very good turnout of surgeons, and there we plenty of willing patients, despite the heavy snow which fell outside throughout the Surgery.

Shortly, I hope to be able to reflect on the three Yorkshire Surgeries that have happened this week, but in the interim I will simply bask in the cumulative positive glow they produce, and look forward to the York Social Media Surgery, which is scheduled for 1st March.

    Well done! Looks like you’ve had a busy week. Looking forward to your reflections. I’ve talked about this before but what are your thoughts on a regular Social Medial Cafe type meet up for exchanging ideas, catching up, collaboration etc?

      Yes, I think an SMC is a good idea. I am disappointed that the Leeds Tuttle seems to have settled on meeting on Saturday mornings, which is out for me and anyone else with teenage kids, I suspect. There is Open Coffee Huddersfield and the Huddersfield Salon, would an SMC attract people outside those constituencies?
