Even if you just emerged from an isolated mountaintop cabin or awakened from a ten-year nap, MMF has assembled a guide that gives all you need to get caught up with social media, and specifically, using it for missions. The 95-page guide, in PDF format, is a free resource and can be downloaded here.
- Stories and recommendations that help with those details that you usually have to learn from trial and error.
- Power tips that summarize the material in the guide into easy to reference tasks.
- Best ways to use social media like Facebook, Twitter, What’s App, and then how to determine if apps like SlideShare are a good fit for your ministry.
- Examples of missional gaming and how it can be used.
- Arguments for whether or not you should pay to boost your social media reach and engagement.
- Comprehensive coverage of security issues with social media.
The guide was an MMF team effort, led by Keith Williams.
