Getting started with Facebook

Facebook is a social networking site for individuals and organizations.

The UUA has a page on Facebook, as do many groups within the UUA, including the following:  Advocacy and Witness, Beacon Press, Central Midwest District, Church of the Younger Fellowship, CLF Unitarian Universalist Military Ministries,  Heartland District, International Resources Office, the Mosaic Project, Prairie Star District, Skinner House Books, Standing on the Side of Love,  Thomas Jefferson District, UU World, and the UUA’s Youth and Young Adult Ministries Office.

Many congregations also have Facebook pages. UU World recently described the efforts of several congregations in Michelle Deakin’s article, “Dallas, Atlanta UU churches make ‘friends’ on Facebook.

Congregational leaders interested in examples of how congregations are using Facebook can also search Facebook for “Unitarian,” or check out the following Facebook pages: Northwest Community Unitarian Universalist Church and Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Church.

One of the UUA’s most popular new media resources is our “Dos and Don’ts for Unitarian Universalist Congregations using Facebook,“ which provides advice on creating, administering and promoting congregational Facebook pages.
