Twitter, Facebook, Myspace.Â If you’re using any of these tools to communicate from the summer mission field, then please communicate with me. FriendFeed, Orkut, Tumblr, Linkedin, Bebo too.
I’ve been asked to assist a friend writing a technology article for a rather popular church-based e-zine. I figured what better audience than the savvy, geeky HYCW cult to provide me with the low-down on such hi-tech replacements to Paul’s parchment?
So what I’m seeking is feedback from individuals participating in summer mission trips who have/are leveraging social networks such as Twitter and/or Facebook to communicate their work in the field back to the home folks.
ALSO, I’d also be interested in any church webmaster/IT administrator who is mashing-up such inbound life-streams onto their church web site.
And I don’t want/need just success stories. If your experiences are a poster child for ‘FACEBOOK FAIL’ or a total ‘TWITTER DISASTER’ I’m equally interested as we all learn so much from such … ummm … character building endeavors.
So leave a comment below or if you like more privacy, introduce me your story via our handy-dandy contact form. I always ask for reciprocal links and spellings of names to make sure you and your organization get the attention and attribution deserved.
Did I leave anything out? Yup … thanks in advance to any and all who respond to my call for content.
UPDATE 18-Jun09: If you have, are, or are going to tweet from the mission field, help me write an article on the topic by answering these questions I’ve placed on a handy-dandy Google form: http://is.gd/15Q7O
