Building community (Facebook)

Our youth group (Youthopea) has set up a group on Facebook and here are some of my observations so far:

  1. Youthopea members who have a Facebook account can join and interact with other Youthopea members who they may never have met (or spoken to much) before
  2. Given that most people use Facebook, as leaders we can track how the youth is growing.
  3. We can follow-up on members if they missed a service or if they haven’t been coming for a while.
  4. Members can be informed of current updates, such as the topic of the month and upcoming events.
  5. Members can use the invite function to invite their friends to the group and events that we create.
