Social Media Explained

by Scott on March 25, 2010

Social media is all about creating relationships and community. This video provides a great overview of why so many people enjoy using Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites. I believe it’s so important for the Church to fully embrace social media as a method of connecting people and building community.

Digital communities are real and they’re relevant. They compliment geographical communities and expand their reach. Pope Benedict XVI refers to the Internet as the “Digital Continent,” and if you think about the implications you’ll soon see why he calls for Catholics to evangelize on that digital continent. I believe the Holy Father wants us to understand that by contributing a Christian perspective to online discussions we are involved in important missionary work.

Thanks to Say it Visually for sharing this video.
