What Congregations Think About Social Networking

An unscientific 2009 survey of 175 congregations, provided some interesting results, according to the Center for Congregations. Two-thirds of congregations do not have a MySpace or Facebook group, 87 percent do not host online conversations, and three-quarters do not have a blog. Yet nearly half of clergy use their own Facebook, MySpace, YahooGroups, and blogs to communicate with the congregation and almost nine in 10 respondents think online social networking enhances congregation and member relationships. An article, by the Center for Congregations, highlights the effectiveness of social media in reaching and communicating with a faith community. The Center strengthens Indiana congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities. The Center shares its learning with a national audience.
