Knowing Your Community in Social Media

App of the Week – Facebook Pages Manager

This week I want to tell you a bit about an app that I’ve been using since it’s release. It’s called Facebook Pages Manager and it is an app to do just that, manage your Facebook Pages (download from the App Store, unfortunately it doesn’t look like there is an Android version available yet). I […]

The Visual Era of Social Media

Recently I read a post by Fast Company about the rise of visual social media. I wholeheartedly agree with the post and I don’t wish to just rewrite everything that was said there, but instead I want to talk about what the implications are for the church’s presence in social media. So go read Fast […]
