This week we hosted our first ever Social Media Clinic at our Support Centre, 1 Angel Square, for colleagues in the building to drop-in for a brew and talk social.

As a team, we’ve been hosting The Co-op Social Media Forum three times a year for a while now, where we speak about the latest innovations in social and the work we’ve been doing, but it was brilliant to get some one-on-one time with colleagues interested in social.
Just to have a natter, really.

I managed to help a colleague from HR understand more about hashtags and Twitter, helping her send her first tweet about a local baking competition she’s entering (good luck Sophie!) and also helped another colleague download WhatsApp onto her phone and send a message to her son who is away serving with the Royal Navy.
Helped a woman WhatsApp her sailor son for the first time and another send her first ever tweet today. Proper social! @CoopDigital

We spoke to colleagues about better integrating social intelligence data into the work of our sustainability and policy teams, and even our product development teams. We chatted about Facebook privacy and showcased social intelligence via our Brandwatch Vizia visualisations too.
We’re all looking forward to the next incarnation of the Social Media Clinic, and for the next Social Media Forum on Thursday 26th November!
