- A "reboot" of a popular and practical how-to guide for leaders bridging digital social media and parish ministry
- Foreword by Mary Hess
Six years ago, the original Click2Save's breakthrough introduction to adopting social media for ministry energized outreach and was embraced across denominations by seminaries and churches, as well as by both graduate and undergraduate religious studies and theology programs. But six years is a long time in the digital world, so now it's time for a reboot!
Revised and updated, Click2Save REBOOT covers the increasing sophistication and importance of mobile computing and leads readers through the changes and additions to social media platforms that are currently shaping how we communicate with, connect with—and can offer Christ-centered care to—one another: Facebook and Twitter, at the center of the first edition, have changed dramatically. Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc. have made images and video much more central. Innovative, often sophisticated voices are overtaking the blog form. Podcasting has become elegant and accessible to the masses through SoundCloud and similar hosting platforms, while Pokémon Go popularized augmented reality—even sometimes leading players into churchyards in their hunt. From their research and personal experience, the authors offer guidance on coping with—and getting the most out of—this evolving revolution.
Audience: seminarians, young (and not so young) church leaders, those ready to engage through social media
