Social Media and the Church

Sr. Mary Ann Walsh of the USCCB looks at the use of social media by Catholics in a new post up at the USCCB website here. I was astounded to learn that 100,000 people visit the USCCB website daily to consult the Readings of the Day. There is an obvious fruit of the Council, no?

The use of social media is enormously complicated. I am currently up here in Connecticut and do not get the washington Post delivered to my door in the morning and I find using the Post's or the Times' website enormously frustrating. Amongst other problems, the web almost never invites serendipity. But, use it we must, and as Sr. Mary Ann demonstrates, it is be used well by hundreds of thousands of Catholics.
