Video: Theological and Ethical Implications of Social Media
The video recorded of my presentation at the Massachusetts Bay District 2010 Spring Conference recently became available. Below is a twenty-minute video of the portion of the conference that covered theological and ethical considerations for congregations in using social media. This video may help congregational leaders in discussing how to use social media in their congregation and how to develop proactive solutions that reduce the challenges of using social media. The slides that accompany the video are also below.
The issues covered in this part of the presentation include:
- Administrative access and security.
- Content moderation and addressing inappropriate content.
- Relationship building, friending dilemmas, etc.
- Creating an inclusive and welcoming space online.
