I've been thinking a lot about utilizing social networking in ministry and church life. Things are at the point where virtually everyone is connected to some social network (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc). Are we adapting our communication to fit the trends? Businesses of all shapes and sizes are using these outlets effectively for connecting with their customers, why couldn't the church do the same to create buzz for what it's doing among its members and community?
I know a number of churches have already tapped into this, but I'm curious: what are Network members doing with social networks? How are you using them? What have you found effective? As a church planter, I intend to use Twitter and Facebook quite heavily to generate buzz on what we're doing and what's coming up. What's happening in your neck of the woods?
