USA Today: Social Media and Religion

An article in USA Today takes an interesting angle on the highly publicized issues of privacy on Facebook and in other social media, drawing parallels with the changing nature of religious communities in our culture. It's written by a Presbyterian pastor who talks about how our churches are becoming more extroverted, perhaps as a result of the emphasis on "sharing" and "openness" encouraged by social media. 

And...I am quoted extensively in the article. :)
