Social media is one of the best ways to shout about Get Online Week. It’s where we can all share the fun stuff that’s happening, as well as being a good way for event holders to advertise what they’ve got going on. Here’s a quick guide to making the most of it for this year’s campaign.

Keep an eye out for our newsletter…
We’ll be doing a daily email round-up of all the amazing things going on during the campaign. Will your posts and pictures end up in the newsletter? Make sure you’re on the mailing list to find out!
On each day of the campaign, there will be a different theme to focus your sessions and social media activity around. If you’ve already planned your week - great! But if you’re looking for a little inspiration, please see our official timetable below of what’s happening on what day and take it from there.
The theme for day one is Get Online Week. Today we'll be talking about the launch of Get Online Week, inviting people to share their campaign activities with us and inviting new learners to visit the official map to find an event near them.

The fifth and final day is all about hobbies and communicating online. Some learners might want to look up recipes online or learn how to crochet, some might want to use Facebook or Skype to keep in touch with family. Whatever they want to do online, this is the perfect time for them to #try1thing.
