  • First, have the group decide WHAT machine they will be (car, airplane, factory…) Only two rules: your part must move and you must be connected to someone else. Then the machine, once all connected, does its thing. Processing is important after the activity:  what is the risk? What is the reward? What happens if a piece fails?  Then relate their experience to “creating a machine” that is a social networking machine.
  • Look at one of the most popular SN platform: FACEBOOK (According to eBiz, based on # of users, as of 6/1/2011)Facebook was launched in February of 2004.Facebook is a privately owned company, and makes money mostly through advertizing.550,000,000 (550 million) active users – that’s unique users per month. 250,000,000 are on mobile devices. Those who use mobile devices are twice as active as those who do not.Users have an avg. of 130 friends. Facebook is where we want to be because everyone else is there. The HUGE advantage of using Facebook is, obviously, that it is a highly visible platform. On our blog, you will read more about Facebook and in our lab time, you will have an assignment that asks you to create a personal Facebook account if you don’t have one.. Once you have a Facebook account, Caroline and I will invite you to join our private Facebook group, SITM 2011, and we will be using that Group for future homework assignments.
  • It is important to highlight that FB often changes how privacy is controlled in your account. Best to keep alert to news articles that talk about this and to go the the FB “Help Center” and search for this information. Then take the time to read the articles that are available to you.
  • After lab time, remind participants about our goal: to create online communities for Christ. “You, in the West, have millions of people who suffer such terrible loneliness and emptiness. They feel unloved and unwanted. These people are not hungry in the physical sense, but they are in another way. They know they need something more than money, yet they don’t know what it is. “What they are missing, really, is a living relationship with God.” We are advocating letting the voice of Christ be heard on the digital continent. How we do that, with respect, dignity, friendship and in dialogue, will  determine whether SN is an effective tool to help draw people to Christ, or just another empty waste of their time.
