Social bookmarks for social media surgery managers

Screenshot: Social Media Surgery stack on

This week I’ve been playing with stacks on Delicious, the social bookmarking site. Stacks are a way to organise your links into a common theme and the new social features make collaborating much easier.

To learn how the new features work – rather than curate links around an arbitrary theme (such as “most awesome kitten stunt videos”, which someone has probably done already) – I started this stack to share resources and links aimed at social media surgery managers.

Here’s my blurb on Delicious describing what, I hope, the stack can be:

I’ve started this stack to share resources and links related to running social media surgeries for voluntary and community organisations. See for more details on what a surgery is, the ethos we share and how to start your own surgery. Please feel free to add your own links but – please note – keep this focused on resources you, as a Surgery Manager, think your “patients” will find useful. If you’ve run a surgery, you’ll have a good idea of what people need to get started and what they need to develop further. This stack of links should be a useful resource. Any SEO / self-styled guru types / spammy marketers / self-promoters, please stay away. Thanks in advance for collaborating.

Are you involved in running, or volunteering, at a social media surgery? Are there resources or links you often find yourself demonstrating that others could benefit from knowing about?

Please feel free to contribute your links to the stack and make it a useful resource.

    Thanks Gavin
    This already looks like a really useful resource (I’ll be using the blogging tips when I help our Cheif Exec set up a blog next Friday). I use diigo to store useful sites and posts so I’ll purge my social media tagged content and see what might be useful to add to your stack. (Ooh, look at me, I sound like I might know what I’m on about! And it’s only a year ago that I first met you and Nick – the power of Podnosh!!!)

      Thanks for the comment – glad you found this post useful 🙂

      I haven’t seen Diigo before, thanks for mentioning it. It looks like something I’d be interested in trying out. I’ve been trying to use Evernote to do something similar to what Diigo suggests it’s for, but haven’t quite got into the routine of using Evernote yet.

      It’d be great to have your links added to the stack!
