Social Media Part 3

letsgetsocial copyFacebook.com is the 6th most trafficked site on the Internet and the no. 1 photo sharing application online with more than 80 million active and registered users. I first got involved with Facebook several years ago, but didn’t really start to keep up with it until I became a student minister last year. At the time Junior High, High School, and college students were the major user of the platform, but it is quickly becoming a place for professionals to network. I have talked to several professionals whose work has had them take Facebook workshops to learn how to connect with others and network. Because it is the leading photo sharing application it is a great place to see photos of your friends and family. They have also added video to the site and I expect to see more video added to the, drawing people away from YouTube to watch videos. It is a great way to connect with old friends and find out more about the people you do business with.

You can see my Facebook profile here.

I have noticed many of our students here at Arrow Heights spend most of day online in this application now that they have added an IM feature, making it a great way to connect with your friends and develop relationship with people that you haven’t had the chance to spend face to face time with.
