Today's Church is seeking to serve an increasingly "wired" population. Join Lisa M. Hendey of CatholicMom.com and author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms (avemariapress.com/product/1-59471-228-X/The-Handbook-for-Catholic-Moms/) for an overview of social media technologies, including social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, as well as tools for communicating through blogs, podcasts, and streaming video. Participants will learn about the basics of these tools, their prevalence in society, the Church's recommendations for employing social media, and best practices being used around the country by parishes, dioceses, and organizations to communicate, support, and evangelize.
This webinar was moderated by Dianna Leinen, parish resources marketing specialist at Ave Maria Press.
