A Social Media Christmas

I’m always intrigued by how social media is shaping the way we make and share meaning. Usually, that takes the form of thinking about how various elements of social media or the larger digital culture can help us share the good news. But from time to time it’s also fun to “look back” and imagine what our forebears would have done with social media. Last year I found “The Digital Story of the Nativity” quite fun in that regard; this year it’s “A Social Network Christmas.” Without wanting to spoil too much, I think my favorite moment was when 23 people “unfriend” Joseph for believing the angel’s message that Mary’s pregnancy was from the Holy Spirit.

Give it a look when you have four minutes; it’s another fun retelling of the Christmas story from Igniter Media, the same folks who put together The Christmas Scale (talented bunch!).
