Meredith Gould the author of The Social Media Gospel: Sharing the Good News in New Ways, offers insights for those of us engaged in the use of social media in as we try to communicate a new articulation of Christianly. Meredith Gould is a sociologist and digital strategist with decades of communications experience. I wish this book had been around when I was making my first forays into the world of social media. I offer it as a suggestion to those of you who are considering the plunge. To the reluctant church professional, Gould insists, “You can’t afford to continue to ignore social media. In one form or another, social media is here to stay. Social media is part of your congregants lives part of your community and neighbourhood and — whether you realize it yet or not — part of your ministry.”
Gould founded the weekly Twitter-based ecumenical Church Social Media Chat (#ChSocM) and serves as its lead moderator.
