The Impact of Social Media: Part 1 – CTJ #36

How has Social Media impacted the world?  What about the individual?  What about the Christian?  What about the Church?

These are the questions we will seek to answer on this series of podcasts about the Impact of Social Media.  Part 1 will mainly focus on society as a whole down to the individual and then start to cross over to how it has impacted Christians individually.  Now that a sufficient amount of time has passed since the dawn of Social Media, there are numerous studies, findings, and consequences coming out that we want to explore.
