Social Media Revolution

Don’t know whether to laugh or be scared. Hat-tip to Becca for this  look at the Social media revolution. It is certainly already making a huge impact in the world and how people find things and interact. What do you think?

    The backing track is Christopher Tin’s ‘Baba Yetu’ (composed for the game Civilisation4) and the lyrics are based on the Lord’s Prayer- and of course sung in Swahili, one of the official languages of Kenya

    What a web of connections in our world

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

    “The ROI is Social Media is
    Your Business Will Still Exist in 5 years”

    Possibly slightly sensationalised for effect, but definitely something the church needs to take seriously!

    Loved that backing trak – almost distracted me from the text I liked it so much!! –
    Facinating stuff – this is the world we live in now – where is it going to go next??

    Good googling Nigel! Very interesting and appropriate given our links to RUSH, Kenya that it was sung in Swahili and that it was the words to the Lord’s prayer

    Simon, the church is making small strides. We had a clergy conference the other day and we set up a hashtag to tweet it! It’s a start.

    Geoff, I was reading an article about a meeting in the US called by President Clinton in 1992 as to how to create jobs in the following decade – no-one thought of the internet!!

    Fascinating statistics. It is everyday life in the developed world. Are those in the third world blessed or deprived by not being part of it?
    From a grammatarian point of view, I might unfriend anyone who uses google as a verb! You know who you are.
    Great info Nig. I assumed you already knew about the track without having to use an internet search engine to find the facts.
