The technology age is moving faster and faster, with more and more doing more and more online.  Today’s teens don’t even read traditional blogs, and are abandoning email as the social connection medium.  FaceBook, text and twitter have taken over. 

And still many churches are just now getting on the web, and haven’t yet considered how social networking can connect them to their communty.

Alvin Reid referred his FaceBook readers to a video on social media:

How can we use this information to get the word out about our churches, about how we can create community?


(p.s. – in the past 6 months, I’ve found many of my high school classmates on FaceBook, even though I moved 1600 miles away.  We planned a reunion virtually, and have begun reconnecting.)
