  • Social media are media for social interaction, using highly accessible and scalable communication techniques. The term refers to the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogue.\n Interactive forms of media that allow users to interact with and publish to each other, generally by means of the Internet.\n Any website or web service that utilizes a 'social' or 'Web 2.0' philosophy. This includes blogs, social networks, social news, wikis, etc.\n Social media is any form of online publication or presence that allows end users to engage in multi-directional conversations in or around the content on the website.\n Software tools that allow groups to generate content and engage in peer-to-peer conversations and exchange of content (examples are YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, MySpace etc)\n A million different definitions from a million different people. But over at Duct Tape Marketing they say “[s]ocial media is the use of technology combined with social interaction to create or co-create value.”\n

  • Understanding the lingo of Social Media can be confusing. Here I will talk about some basic terms to help you better understand and feel more comfortable as you navigate the online Social Media world.\nBlog – A blog (short for weblog) is a personal online journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs are defined by their format: a series of entries posted to a single page in reverse-chronological order.Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or reflect the purpose of the Web site that hosts the blog. Topics sometimes include brief philosophical musings, commentary on Internet and other social issues, and links to other sites the author favors, especially those that support a point being made on a post.\nEmail blasts - An email sent to multiple recipients, intended to inform them of announcements, events or changes. A variety of methods can be used to send the same email to multiple recipients: for example: using options within an email program, using the mail merge option within a word processing program, or using a commercial email list programs.\nFriend Request – This vague term is creeping up all over pop culture in commercials and even jokes. Think of a friend request as a method for asking someone to join your online social network.\nInstant Messaging (IM) - Instant messaging, often shortened to simply "IM" or "IMing," is the exchange of text messages through a a software application in real-time. Generally included in the IMsoftware is the ability to easily see whether a chosen friend, co-worker or "buddy" is online and connected through the selected service.\nInternal Networks - Social networks that are kept private. A corporation might have an internal network for it’s employees. This would be an online venue where they could communicate and collaborate about work related issues.\nLive Streaming - Streaming video is content sent in compressed form over the Internet and displayed by the viewer in real time.\nMicroblogging – When you post information to the web in small doses. Twitter is microblogging.\nPodcast - Streaming video is content sent in compressed form over the Internet and displayed by the viewer in real time.\nShrink a Link – Websites such as BudUrl.com or isgd.com, tiny.cc, bit.ly, and more allow you to take a long URL and shrink the link to just a few characters.\nSMS - Short Message Service is the transmission of short text messages to and from a mobile phone, fax machine and/or IP address. Messages must be no longer than 160 alpha-numeric characters and contain no images or graphics. (also see Text Messaging)\nSocial Media – A million different definitions from a million different people. A formal definition is: “[s]ocial media is the use of technology combined with social interaction to create or co-create value.”\nSocial Network – Locations on the Internet where individuals can contact other individuals, share information, join groups, promote their businesses, etc.\nText Messaging (Texting) - Text Messaging allows short text messages to be sent and received on a mobile phone. Messages can be sent from one phone to another by addressing the message to the recipient's phone number. Messages can also usually be sent to a phone via a special email address, through the carrier's web site, or with special messaging software and a modem. (also see SMS)\nTweet - To send a message no bigger than 140 characters using Twitter\nWeb 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 – Web 1.0 is one-way broadcasting, meaning only the owner of the site can publish information. Web 2.0 signifies a conversation between the original author of the content and all those who can comment or participate. Web 3.0 is not clearly defined yet, but the general consensus says that Web 3.0 is about openness and about being available from all devices and from all places. The site ReadWriteWeb explains the concept in detail. Head on over there if you’d like to know more.\nWidget – On the web, a widget is a small piece of code that can be placed anywhere on a website resulting in a unique piece of information viewable by the web visitor. For example, I installed a “tag cloud” widget on the left side of this blog.\nViral – When a blog post, video, picture, or other piece of online content is spread by Internet users to many other users.

  • Recently, LifeWay Research put out two reports about how churches use technology. The first covers how churches use the web and the second covers how churches use social media.\n 47% of churches actively use Facebook.\n 20% of churches use social media tools included in church management software.\n 40% of churches don’t use any social media tools.\n Bigger churches are more likely to use Facebook: 81% of churches with 500 people or more use Facebook, compared to 27% of churches with fewer than 50 people.\n 78% of churches have a website.\n Less than half of those churches use their site for interactive purposes (prayer requests, event registration, streamlining church processes).\n 15% of churches update their site more than once a week.\n 40% update it once a week.\n 42% update it once a month or less.\n 7% update it once a year.\nLimited staff time (46%), limited financial resources (41%), limited volunteer time (39%) and lack of interest or demand (35%) keep churches from providing more online content and services.\n\n"Biblical community requires feet and faces, not only retweets and fan pages," cautions Lifeway Research Director, Scott McConnell. "But clearly social networking is a helpful tool to build and maintain community."\n\n

  • Youth Focused\n- this is where the youth are. If you want to connect with them and enter their world, social media is where you need to be.\n- In the June 20 Lancaster Sunday News a story was published about Amish youth who are on Facebook. Their culture stays away from technology, including phones, but in recent years have allowed cell phones to be used in emergencies. It is through the smart phones that the youth are connecting to the social media world. The elders in the community consider this behavior as part of their Rumspringa, when youth are allowed to explore the outside world before they make a commitment to be part of the Amish community. Even so, there is concern about how this trend will change the lifestyle and community of the Amish.\n\nMission Focused\n- people want to give / support missions, but they need to be emotionally involved.\n- connect with social organizations you support through SM - \n- Social Media is a great platform for telling stories/personally connecting donors with doers\n- Blog about a church mission trip - begin before the trip; introduce people going on trip; tell about where you’re going, what you want to accomplish; put “wish” list of items you need for trip - have people “follow” your blog\n- Blog during the trip - have each person tell their story; post photos and video; create interaction between participants and sponsors\n\nEvangelism\n- Social Media is a great platform for sharing the gospel.
