The City of Spokane’s Office of Neighborhood Services is offering free social media training for neighborhoods (and, by association, neighborhood-centric organizations) on Monday, June 24 from 6 to 7:30pm at Tincan [map].
During the 90-minute session, participants will learn how to set up and maintain accounts with Nextdoor, Twitter, Facebook, and blog sites like Blogger and WordPress. They’ll also learn why social media matters in building stronger neighborhood ties.
Little ol’ Emerson-Garfield was recently highlighted by the ONS as a neighborhood that is using social media effectively, so a representative from our neighborhood will be there to share firsthand experience with blogging, tweeting, and Facebook-ing.
Even though we’ve received a pat on the back in this area, we’re still encouraging people in Emerson-Garfield to participate — because when it comes to getting the word out about neighborhood events, more routine and more effective communication is never a bad thing. If you’re interested, please RSVP to Boris Borisov via e-mail or at (509) 625-6087.
