Are you a member of a group looking to start your very own group? Have you recently started a group but have a question on how to improve your group description or moderating options? Do you want tips on how to start engaging discussions or get new members?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Yahoo! Groups 101 workshop is for you. Yahoo! Groups is happy to announce a new resource for Groups users called Workshops. Workshops are live, online, moderated chats led by Yahoo! staff, with a focus on a specific topic of conversation at a specific, scheduled time.
Our first Workshop will be held on Wednesday, August 27 from 4pm to 5pm Pacific Time (time zone converter ). This Workshop will be a great opportunity to get the basics of starting and setting up a new group. We’ll offer tips on some of the Groups topics mentioned above and respond to specific questions about setting up a new group submitted by Yahoo! Groups users. To submit a question for this workshop beforehand, please visit the Workshop page here . You will also have the opportunity to ask questions live during the event.
We’ll post the full transcript of the session on the blog afterwards for those of you who can’t attend.
Also, for those of you who are advanced moderators, don’t feel left out. Future workshops will be geared toward more advanced topics, including "How to Be a Better Moderator." So stay tuned!
We look forward to chatting with you!
