Hello everyone! I just wanted to jot down an update with how my research on social networking in the Christian Church has been going. I have added another main source to my studies. The book is called 'The Church of Facebook: How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community,' by Jesse Rice. I am hoping that this will help give further insight specifically into Facebook, and how Christian churches are using it. I am wanting to delve deeper into how social networking affects, enhances, and/or diminishes my thesis that humans have the inherent desire to know and be known.
Please comment if you have any relevant thoughts of articles or writings on this particular topic. I would like to look at both sides of the spectrum within Christianity of the affects of Facebook and social networking within Christian churches. Also, check out this blog post by Richard Beck, with his idea of how he believes Facebook is killing the Church. It is quite an interesting viewpoint.
Furthermore, I have added some new links and revamped the site a little bit. Feel free to explore some of the other blogs, websites, statistics, and authors I'm looking at to compile information on the subject of social networking in the Church.
