Book Review: The Church and New Media by Brandon Vogt

The Church and New Media by Brandon Vogt (Our Sunday Visitor, 208 pages, August 3, 2011) In my line of work it is not uncommon for clients and organizations to want an immediate presence on Facebook and Twitter. Throw in a YouTube or Vimeo channel and anyone can be on the new media bandwagon. The problem is not about getting onto new media sites; the problem is about knowing how to leverage those sites to meet your overall goals. The […]

The Man Without A Facebook

Funny, but sad. It says a lot about how “connected” we are and how disconnected we’re becoming.

Pope Benedict XVI Tweets!

Back in early 2007 as I delved more deeply into the world of social media, I also started a Master’s program in Theology at the University of San Francisco.

Seriously, you need to watch the YouTube video below. What would a 21st century Nativity story look like?

Dilbert on Social Media

Saw this and had to share it. I love Dilbert!

A Jesuit Olive?

Did the post title catch your interest? If it did, I should probably tell you up front that there is no such thing as a Jesuit olive. There is, however, an olive that knows plenty about Jesuit history, particularly that of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Check it out! This creative, fun, engaging, and educational video was written, produced, and narrated by Jason Kapell of the Fairfield University Media Center. I think it is fantastic!
