Im currently Managing social media at catholic diocesepaulsteinbrueck: Thats the first Ive seen or heard of the Forrester Ladder. Interesting.chsocm: T1 Where would place yourself (not your organization) on the Forrester ladder? Has your locationchanged over time?mirgray: That ladder is tricky. Im a joiner for some tools and community and a Conversationalist in others.chsocm: @paulsteinbrueck Classic...been around for a while but prolly new to church social media folk.tijuanabecky: RT @mirgray: That ladder is tricky. Im a joiner for some tools and community and aConversationalist in others.pinkpaddler: I am now squarely in the creator category. Just started blogging. And maintain a YouTubechannel and website.mgoins: T1 Im in multiple groups: joiner, collector, critic & conversationalist - dependent on whichaudience Im interacting with.rev_david: @HigherEdGirl Just walked in the door from gymnastics :-)KYMargueritte: RT : Welcome to our weekly church and social media () chat, especially folks joining us forthe first time!Denise205: @tijuanabecky @mirgray There are a couple of social media properties where Im inactive too.expatminister: Just getting here!

Most of the folks in mychurch are inactives.RchrdBott: Working to be coversationalist, looking more like joiner.MeredithGould: RT @iamepiscopalian: T1: Clearly we move up and down the ladder, and at times occupymultiple rungs.RevWeb: Been sloooooowly ramping up to conversationalist. Sometimes easy. Other times not so.mwehrman: depending on the site, topic or content I am on every rung based on my comfort level.MeredithGould: @paulsteinbrueck Not sure the ladder is meant to be a hierarchy. Does it seem that way?pinkpaddler: @Denise205 @paulsteinbrueck I hope its not boastful. After all, she did ask us.penelopepiscopl: T1: Im a creator, too. (and do the other stuff as well). I also learn by doing a la@drothamel 4
  • 5. chsocm: Well get to organizations, for now lets focus on us as individuals engaged with social mediamgoins: We all must start somewhere!RchrdBott: @MeredithGould Ladder terminology seems to be hierarchical to me.tijuanabecky: I think the ladder needs to be turned sideways @MeredithGould. Instead of going up or downyou can have some of all or few.drothamel: @MeredithGould @paulsteinbrueck thats the only thing I dont like about it. Its a ladder. Itshould be overlapping circles.mgoins: @rev_david Serious lol - just woke a kid!Anj121: I dwell on all rungs of the ladder depending on the site.http://bit.ly/pTDoAbmirgray: @penelopepiscopl @MeredithGould Not also trying to avoid critic? I dont like the term. I wishtheyd used commentor instead.mgoins: @skenow @MeredithGould @paulsteinbrueck Yes, venn diagrams anyone?MeredithGould: @RchrdBott Could be...never saw it that way, so this is great to find out that others do!RchrdBott: Like others, Im all over the place... though not much of a collector.edkay77: Personally, I find myself in the Conversationalist and Spectator areas; professionally, all of theareas but inactive.Denise205: @MeredithGould @paulsteinbrueck Ladder imagery implies some hierarchy, but this contexthas it ok to be in multiple rungsskenow: @mgoins Theres a math major, for you!craho: I collect in order to create.MeredithGould: RT @craho: I collect in order to create.drothamel: @MeredithGould @iamepiscopalian heheh.18penelopepiscopl: RT @craho: I collect in order to create. //Me, too!chsocm: T1 Where are you most comfy?iamepiscopalian: @RevWeb Were clearly wrestling with "something" around here.revrevwine: I have seen something similar presented as x,y axis & not a ladder...allows for a spectrum andvarying degrees of classificationspinkpaddler: T1 I like creating, though I am still getting used to Twitter and dont always dive in. 5
  • 6. penelopepiscopl: @cdbush Charles, check your hashtag.naaho: "spectating" - just as much due to time as anything - I have to push myself to engage latelyHigherEdGirl: As a conversationalist- #SM is built to engage RT : T1 Where are you most comfy?RchrdBott: In text form? Conversationalist/creator. When it comes to imagery - especially moving, Immore of a joiner.mirgray: @MeredithGould @paulsteinbrueck A ladder metaphor can only imply a hierarchy. May not behelpful/realistic to imply a top rung.RevWeb: Love the critic rung. Never thought I would. Great energy there.klamach: T1: blogging, tweeting, and posting FB updates about my faith and causes I believe innaaho: @HigherEdGirl it is built that way, but it can also be very one-sidedrev_david: Most comfortable jumping between creator & conversationalist. And hoping I dont fall off theladder!Denise205: I find it interesting that conversationalist rung is defined by updating Twitter and FB. It doesntsay anything about engaging!mirgray: I want to be a connector but this is not an option. Not quite an expert but knowing who will knowthe answer.iamepiscopalian: @MeredithGould Its not you. We have FAR TOO FEW twitter convos. FB we really onlymonitor.chsocm: T2 Where would you place your organization/church at this point in time? Where would like it tobe?craho: @mirgray good observation. I agree.Anj121: Most comfy at spectator but know I need to push myself more as creator & conversationalistmgoins: T2 just starting out wed be spectators with a touch of creators (podcasts, fb pages) all in earlystages.Denise205: My organization is definitely at the Creator and Conversationalist rungs.mirgray: T2. 70% inactive 17% joiners. Is Farmville a good thing or a bad thing?MeredithGould: RT @skenow: If I look at the ladder as increasing degrees of intention and deliberation, ithelpsRchrdBott: I find the convos with faith folks of other denoms great - but few in my congregation orgeographic area. 6
  • 7. edkay77: T2 Well, Im monitoring most of our SM but have lots of help, so our Synod (Diocese) is hitting allof them... some well, some not.MeredithGould: RT : T2 Where would you place your organization/church at this point in time? Wherewould like it to be?drothamel: T2: folks in my church are mostly inactive, some joiners. Pastor is a creator.paulsteinbrueck: T2: Mostly spectators with "inactive" & "conversational" not far behindCandiceBenbow: @iamepiscopalian Whats ?expatminister: +1 RT @rev_david: Most comfortable jumping between creator & conversationalist. Andhoping I dont fall off the ladder!rev_david: As individuals within the cong, they run the whole spectrum.MeredithGould: @drothamel Wait...isnt GOD the Creator? Oh, never mind, you said pastor is "a" creatorklamach: T2: I would say Conversationalists, though our priest is definitely a Creator TBTG!naaho: its easy to get people to start at the "bottom" but i think education/motivation has to move them to"top" = communitymwehrman: T2 Im trying to get them off the bottom rung and start interacting at a time other than 9amSundays.pinkpaddler: @MeredithGould @drothamel OK I did feel a little presumptious referring to myself asCreator!drothamel: @MeredithGould Heheh. Yes, a creator, not THE creator. I helped her become a creator, so Iguess Im a creator-creator. LOL.cephasmedia: T2 Jumping in late, here. Im with @mirgray. Doesnt seem to have a rung formoderating/curating.MeredithGould: gives me an opportunity to talk with people of faith from other churches. Helps me grow infaith!iamepiscopalian: Oddly enough our @klout is a 53 = Influencer.mirgray: @mgoins @MeredithGould @RchrdBott What is target ratio for creators to conversationalists tospectators in healthy congregation?drothamel: @iamepiscopalian oh man, dont even get me started on Klout. . .revrevwine: hv problem with the ladder img... uplifts some type of progression... beauty of social is you canparticipate at any level you choose 7
  • 8. Denise205: @iamepiscopalian Isnt there a variant on the ladder that includes influencers? Or am Iimagining that?jameshooper: @MeredithGould I agree. Its been totally helpful to interact with those I wouldve never metwithout twitternaaho: u could remove the reference to social media and this ladder could still be used to describe ourcongregationsiamepiscopalian: @CandiceBenbow A weekly SM faith chat. Come on over!revrevwine: even as a spectator you are participatingnaaho: @drothamel @iamepiscopalian I agree!RchrdBott: Heavens, @mirgray - Id be grateful if 10% were conversationalists.edkay77: RT @Anj121: @iamepiscopalian @klout <------Our next topic? // Id love some conversationaround that!tijuanabecky: RT @revrevwine: even as a spectator you are participatingmgoins: @Anj121 ew ew future topic?!?! #kloutWade_A_Hampton: @iamepiscopalian I like influencer, but Specialist is okayDenise205: RT @jameshooper: @MeredithGould I agree. Its been totally helpful to interact with those Iwouldve never met without twitterMeredithGould: @Ms_Confucious No kiddinmirgray: @MeredithGould First ballpark: 15 creators to 35 conversationalists to 50 spectators.mgoins: @Denise205 @jameshooper @MeredithGould I fourth that opinion!mirgray: @MeredithGould Expect Creators group relatively stable. Others more fluid and people move inan out over time and topic.paulsteinbrueck: @MeredithGould Usually those people are interested in using social media to promote &strengthen their denom & not ppl or the ChurchAnj121: RT @MeredithGould: Frankly, I worry about those who say they’re interested in #chsocm but willnot engage with other denominations.rampracer: RT @meredithgould: Frankly, I worry about those who say theyre interested in #chsocm butwill not engage with other denominations.naaho: @paulsteinbrueck @MeredithGould or its one more tool for "control" 8
  • 9. edkay77: RT @meredithgould: Frankly, I worry about those who say theyre interested in #chsocm but willnot engage with other denominations.RevWeb: @Ms_Confucious @MeredithGould If one is secured in their own faith then there is nothing tofear. Faith shared is not faith lost.mirgray: @RchrdBott @mirgray I think 10% is too small. Too easy to be seen as insiders or special elite.MeredithGould: Honestly, sometimes I feel like SHOUTING, folks the "c" in one holy catholic & apostolicchurch is a little "c"Ms_Confucious: YES!! RT @RevWeb @MeredithGould If one is secure in their own faith then there isnothing to fear. Faith shared is not faith lost.klamach: RT @MeredithGould: Honestly, sometimes I feel like SHOUTING, folks the "c" in one holy catholic& apostolic church is a little "c"cephasmedia: @meredithgould I worry about people of any stripe using social media as a bully pulpit.drothamel: @MeredithGould LOL. When I was a little kid in the Lutheran church, that always confused me.TrinityLimeRock: Easier to engage with other liturgical denominations in my experience. Need to figure outwhy.revrevwine: also you know they are there with analyticsMs_Confucious: RT @MeredithGould: Honestly, sometimes I feel like SHOUTING, folks the "c" in one holycatholic & apostolic church is a little "c"rampracer: RT @meredithgould: Honestly, sometimes I feel like SHOUTING, folks the "c" in one holycatholic & apostolic church is a little "c"mirgray: @revrevwine But an evangelists we want to maybe be joiner oriented. Faith isnt a spectatorsport.RchrdBott: @mirgray Right now, in the congregation, Im at 1% & theyre using ggle buzz. 10% would be agreat start. 40%+ would be glorious. :)jameshooper: Its not about your church. Its about The Church. Using social media to help The Churchconnect with the church is critial.mgoins: @jameshooper Exactly!MeredithGould: MT @jameshooper: Its not about your church. Its about The Church. Using social media tohelp The Church connectRchrdBott: @revrevwine True. Thanks for that.RevWeb: Amen to that. RT @Anj121: @MeredithGould And that little "c" means universal! 9
  • 10. naaho: the world is still crying out for the truth that we know - social media allows us into their livingrooms 2 share their hurtrevrevwine: @mirgray how do we measure "active" faith is it engaging social convos?... SM allows theindividual to choose how to affiliateRevWeb: SM may be the best ecumenical vehicle since Vatican II.TrinityLimeRock: Of course it’s about THE church -- but its still easier with similar denominations. Justsaying. For evangelicals as well?revrevwine: AMEN! RT @RevWeb: SM may be the best ecumenical vehicle since Vatican II.tijuanabecky: RT @meredithgould: MT @jameshooper: Its not about your church. Its about The Church.Using social media to help The Church connectklamach: always looking for ecumenical dialogue, I only get denominational with the unchurched! :-)RchrdBott: RT @RevWeb SM may be the best ecumenical vehicle since Vatican II. / And inter-faithconversation space, as well.edkay77: RT @jameshooper: I dont know if Facebook (in ministry) is as useful as it was a year or two ago.// Has something taken its place?RchrdBott: @jameshooper Why not FB, James?MeredithGould: @mirgray It depends. I also work in/for the healthcare industry & some people areabsolutely NOT open about faithDenise205: @jameshooper Why do you say that?pinkpaddler: @mirgray @revrevwine Good question! If they arent "out" about their faith, why are wetalking about all this?mirgray: @MeredithGould Yes, it is is work related they may not be able to be.CandiceBenbow: Coming! RT @iamepiscopalian: @CandiceBenbow A weekly SM faith chat. Come on over!MeredithGould: @mirgray Make that "most" are not because it puts their secular careers at riskTrinityLimeRock: But kids?rev_david: SocMed - esp twitter - allows me to have conversation w. another because we find one anotherinteresting. Not because of labels.RchrdBott: @pinkpaddler If they arent out about their faith, I wonder if thats a good part of wherespectator as participant comes in?Anj121: My twitter/fb friends are open about faith not necessarily denomination. And thats ok with me. 10

Go for spectators tooskenow: Social media is still quite visual and less audible - very different in terms of communication stylesjameshooper: @Denise205 I wonder. Ive been in large church and small church and the responses areabout equal. I use FB all the time though.mgoins: @RevWeb That is why Im here!mirgray: @MeredithGould I dont have an answer. I do get flack from unchurched about volume of faithstuff I expose them to. Need another id.iamepiscopalian: RT @MeredithGould: @RevWeb Well, the "e" word (evangelization) freaks some peopleout! // Yup.mgoins: @RevWeb To learn, not to teach - well, maybe a touch of both. We are all teachers.pinkpaddler: @MeredithGould @RevWeb Yep, theres an old adage that Episcopalians invite someone tochurch an average of once every 38 years.TrinityLimeRock: @meredithgould glad Im not the only one who gets itchsocm: T3 How are clergy & lay ministers using social media? How is this different from how secular folksuse it?MeredithGould: @pinkpaddler That frequently?MeredithGould: RT @rev_david: From observation, many in the congregation talk about their faith morefreely thru SocMed than in "real life"drothamel: SM is more than talking about faith with others. It is about LIVING out faith with others. paulsteinbrueck: T3: entire books have been written on this topic & u expect us to answer in < 140 chars?:)drothamel: T3: My experience is that clergy use it a lot like other professionals-- according to theirindividual personalities. 11

It is about LIVING out faithwith others.craho: @drothamel interesting. is that becuase clergy need to connect people?mgoins: I find that the discussion and many of your tweets throughout the day bring me back to mypurpose. Thank you for that.Denise205: RT @RevWeb: I suspect there are spectators (lurkers) on this chat tonight. Bless you for beinghere.cephasmedia: T3 Im a clergy person with a secular job. The distinction is between my personal accounts &professional ones.drothamel: @craho perhaps. There are shallow, annoying salespeople on SM, and thoughtful ones. Same forclergy.RchrdBott: Creating space for conversations - all of them sacred - sometimes specifically about the sacred.tijuanabecky: Yup..doing that..also in 2.

LOL.cephasmedia: T3: Not sure Ive seen lay ministers use SM as lay ministers...has anyone?Denise205: @cephasmedia Exactly.

RT @jameshooper: Its sad, I think the church is a bit late on using technology.

Yes. Are? Not always. (This is an introvert tweeting. *grin*)drothamel: @naaho ask them if they "dont have time" for evangelism and stewardship. SM is just anextension.MeredithGould: RT @drothamel: @naaho ask them if they "dont have time" for evangelism andstewardship.

Not just for myselfCandiceBenbow: @jameshooper: Were using it for fundraising and "platform" launching. But I think morecould definitely be done for outreach.cephasmedia: I have sympathy with the "dont have time" reason. There are lots of demands on time; is smthe best use of time?jameshooper: SM has the greatest opportunity for us to show the world that were not only about Sunday.craho: @MeredithGould @craho ha! love cheetos.MeredithGould: If were baptized, were ministers...and some are ordained.penelopepiscopl: @rev_david Nice.CandiceBenbow: RT @drothamel: RT @RchrdBott: Often clergy seem to use our public face on s/m wherepeople seem to want to meet who we really are.iamepiscopalian: RT @MeredithGould: If were baptized, were ministers...and some are ordained. 14

I think, sometimes, clergy r afraid ofwords coming back to bite us. :)chsocm: Coming up on the hour, folks! A few minutes to closing prayer.penelopepiscopl: @cephasmedia SM is another way to build relationships. We make time, just as we wouldw/phone or hosp visits.RevWeb: Just curious. What was the conversation at coffee hour when the 1st phones appeared in town?Pastor on fone too much? Not visiting?naaho: @cephasmedia @penelopepiscopl I think it is worth time b/c ppl are more "vulnerable" "accessible"& it IS community.paulsteinbrueck: @cephasmedia I agree. If you dont have time for social media, you dont have time forpeople.revrevwine: @cephasmedia everything is headed digital...SM is the tip of iceberg...
