“Using local social media to buy, sell and give things away”

A variety of popular local social media platforms operate in Guildford such as the Freecycle Group which has 36,000 members, Freegle and local Facebook groups, all of which are aimed at promoting the re-use of unwanted items and reducing landfill. In this session, we will have a closer look at these various local groups and explore some of the issues members face as they work out which items to give away, who to give them to and how to manage a safe and convenient collection. We will also be discussing how these local social media platforms help to build a sense of local community. (Dr. Christine Hine, University of Surrey)
