Some people can’t comprehend CMI’s objective. To them, embracing social media is asking them to do something different than they are already doing, but this isn’t true. One of the blog’s objectives is to educate and equip you to handle the social media you are already using better with more missional engagement.
For instance, if you are a Facebook user like the other 1.4 billion people, you can post both public and private posts by simply adjusting your privacy settings per status. This way you can be an influence with your family and friends and to the rest of the world. People can opt to subscribe to your posts without being your friend. Twitter is even simpler.
If you wish to keep your Facebook private, you can sign up for twitter under a pseudonym and engage people for Christ while protecting your privacy. Twitter is a newsfeed that you can share photos and 140 character sentences, reply to people, repeat (retweet) people’s articles, and pray for people. Either of these, if managed, can be done well for thirty minutes a day.
