2) How Does Your Ministry Keep Up With Social Media Changes?

New apps and changes in Facebook come nearly daily. How do you keep up? If you can invest 3 hours a week for 5 weeks, you could learn the new media options and how to establish meaningful communication with your ministry audience. Mission Media U is an online mentored learning platform and their Foundations of New Media Strategy course starts May 2. For more information and to register:

4) Who Does Social Media Well?

Social-mediaI’m still trying to find a ministry, mission or church which is doing social media WELL. Interestingly, no one has shared any success stories yet. Is it possible that social media has been a bit of a disappointment for all of us, as churches and agencies?

9) Yammer: We’re lovin’ it —

If you haven’t already given it a try, you might be surprised how much you and your team will like it. Just browse to…

 

http://www.yammer.com

 

Fill out the brief form so that your domain is recognized, then start inviting people on board. Believe it or not, the entire service is free and encrypted. It’s kind of like Facebook for an individual work group or company, except there are no ads and none of those annoying “apps.” In fact, there isn’t anyone else permitted in your group — except for those who have your same domain. Recently, Microsoft bought it, claiming they wanted it as an alternative to Bridges. They COULD build the technology info something like Office or SharePoint, then shut down Yammer, but it seems unlikely they would do so until we try it. :-)

We’ll leave the light on for you. Oh — it accommodates Apple products too… iPhones, iPads, and more. Anything with a browser will work. Try it. Your team might like it.
