Zoom Manchester is a citizen-led local internet space, a community groups and group activities finder, created and administered by Manchester Libraries. Zoom Manchester allows residents to find details of groups and group activities, either by theme or location, and to easily create, organise, update and publish information about their own groups and group activities. The site content is completely user-generated, though subject to moderation. There is no charge for any part of using Zoom Manchester: registering, searching and listing groups and their activities is free. The site does not carry listings for profit-making and commercial organisations. 300 hundred organisations are now listed on Zoom. Carry on reading to find out why....
1. Free web space for your group.
Zoom helps people find your group. And it’s free! It’s better than a traditional directory or a database because you can add videos and activities and make your page stand out from the crowd. Zoom gives you your own online space and being on the Zoom website means your group will usually be listed on the first page of Google search results when people do a general search for your group.
2. It’s connected and social
Visitors can easily share your page or your activities on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ helping you to publicise your events and activities
3. You’re in control
Zoom Manchester is a citizen-led local internet space. You register your own organisations and add your own activities so you are not waiting for someone else to input all the details into a database. You can choose your own logo and even add your own videos to show people what your group does.
4. It’s simple, quick and easy to sign up
You can add your group or organisation directly from the Manchester Zoom homepage. Simply complete one short online form and once your group is approved you’re free to add meetings, events, videos and start to promote your Zoom page.
5. Your helping to create something really useful
Zoom is a site, managed by Manchester Libraries, that aims to bring together community groups and non profit organisations together under one digital roof. We want to share all the great things that are happening in our communities and put them on the map. And we want as many people to be able to find out about them as possible. By adding your group to Zoom Manchester you are helping to create a really useful community tool as well as encouraging communities to start conversations around specific hobbies, interests, particular groups and organisations.
