Recently, I have been wanting to work on a series of posts highlighting the efforts of United Methodist annual conferences, Episcopal dioceses, and their affiliated organizations on social media. Today, I’m happy to announce that I’m kicking off this series, with a post on the social media presences of the Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota!
I have two big reasons for wanting to highlight this particular group first, namely:
- They’ve experienced considerable recent growth not just in the number of people reached, but in the number of platforms they use
- They have used their social media presences in some creative ways, including ecumenical engagement and sharing content from a variety of sources
And so I’ve been in touch with the person responsible for social media for the Diocese, Dr. Chris Corbin, who has kindly answered several questions regarding the usage of social media in the Diocese.
