Event Resources | London Really Useful Day | May 2015

Really Useful Day: Social media for councils took place in London on 15 May 2015.

As with all Really Useful Days, the event was practical and hands-on, with an emphasis on enabling councils and voluntary organisations to network, share knowledge and develop new skills.

Attendees heard from local authorities doing interesting things with social media. They also worked on an emergency flooding scenario and discussed topics including dealing with abuse on social media, choosing the right channel and evaluation.
