ACM Training | socialmediatestbed.com | practising the social web in private
The socialmediatestbed.com is a secure online environment where users can - as the name suggests - test or train for the social web well away from the public eye. Engineers have long been using real test beds to make safer and better products. We believe our virtual test bed will help you make better and safer use of platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

But it's got many other uses besides. In particular the socialmediatestbed.com is a great way of driving forward emergency planning exercises - dynamically and in real-time - so that emergency plans can be properly validated, staff trained and procedures tested (as required of organisations under the Civil Contingencies Act). It can be used as a tool in discussion-based, desk top and live exercises.

The socialmediatestbed.com is also a fantastic tool to teach children (especially at primary level) social media norms, etiquette and dangers such as cyber bullying and grooming in a safe, secure and supportive classroom environment.
