Oh My Blog Workshop: Cyber Savvy with Cherry Sorbet

Cherry Sorbet and Oh My Blog ran a Cyber Savvy Masterclass today, and I was luckily enough to be invited as an official live tweeter. Nice to know my excessive twitterings are paying off! We used the hashtag #csomb and as soon as I arrived I got to it!

Cate Sevilla (@cupcate) led the session, along with Jo Gifford (@jojogifford).

I think the biggest challenge when running a social media discussion (and I certainly find it a challenge during Wonderful Women sessions) is the vast range of experience and confidence. You tend to find a mixed group of people, some of who love things like Twitter, and some who have yet to sign up. Cate and Jo did well to balance the needs of the group, as there was a big variation of social savviness.

As you can see - it was a busy class!

             

 

 

 

I tweeted the day away using Hootsuite, while my neighbour used Tweetdeck - which do you use?

 

 

 

 

We did have breaks where we chatted amongst ourselves, here is Cate giving some Twitter advice.

 

 

 

 

And finally a lovely pic of Cate and Jo.

 

Both Cate and Jo run other sessions if you feel you need some help. So visit their sites or tweet them if you would like to know more.

I also run twitter sessions 1-2-1 over coffee, so contact me if that sort of thing interests you!
