An Introduction to Social Media: Setting up Platforms & Creating Content

Tuesday 5th December 2017

Timing: 10.30 - 15.00

Location: Commissioner's House, Historic Dockyard, Chatham, ME4 4TZ

A training session aimed at Kent Museums, who are Accredited or WTA museums, this beginner's session, led by Alec Ward from London Museum Development, will help you to set up and manage three different social media platforms.

Over the course of the morning, we will look at how to create a Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account – and the sort of content that works best for those platforms.

In the afternoon, you will have an opportunity to create your own content for those social media platforms.

Over the course of the day, we will also look at how other organisations are using social media creatively and engaging with audiences online.

Please note that this session is for beginners and we will be covering the basics of social media platform and content creation.

To get the most out of the day, we suggest that you bring with you a laptop and tablet / mobile device.
