How new media unites communities

There's a wee piece in the Leicester Mercury today promoting our Amplified meeing this evening. It's not quite right in a number of ways, but every little helps!
How new media unites communities

The increasing use of social media by faith and belief groups will be discussed at a free event organised by De Montfort University (DMU) in Leicester tonight.

One of a series of monthly talks by Amplified Leicester, the discussion will be held at Phoenix Square Film  and Digital Media Centre, on Midland Street, Leicester from 7pm until 8pm.

Amplified Leicester is a project run by DMU exploring how new media can help diverse communities in Leicester work together.

The discussion will be chaired by George Ballentyne.

Sue Thomas, DMU's professor of new media, said: "Each of our panelists will show how their organisations use social media to different ends – some surprising and unexpected – to extend spheres of influence, promote effective social action, engage audiences, and foster rational debate."

The talk is free of charge but you should pre-register at:
