Be Good Be Social is for the beginner as much as the digital die-hard. We're all about bringing together people interested in social media for social good, whether you work or volunteer for a non-profit, charity or social enterprise.
You'll get a chance to see how other Scottish third sector organisations are using tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube as well as blogging and podcasting platforms to bring about real change and raise funds.
Thanks to Blackbaud for their generous sponsorship, Big Lottery Fund Scotland for contributing towards catering costs, Beyond the Finish Line & First Port for hosting in their amazing workspace and Third Sector Lab for organising.
