One of my favorite blogs to follow is Catholic Web Solutions by Sr. Susan Wolf, SND. Sister is always up on the latest trends for using social media in the New Evangelization. Today, she has a fascinating post about some folks’ hesitance to get involved in using Facebook and “that other stuff” in support of spreading the Good News:
“Sister, do you use Facebook and that other stuff,” a woman in the check-out line at our community’s annual BBQ and Boutique, inquired this past Sunday. “Yes,” I answered, “and Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest.” She went on, “We heard about that in Church this morning.” She shook her head and said, “They are not good.” “That’s not true.” I said, and then added, “The Pope tweets, you know, and many dioceses and parishes are on Facebook.” She shrugged her shoulders, smiled and moved on.
A question for you: Do you have friends and family who question your use of social media? How do you respond?
