It seems like Facebook has just really exploded over the last couple of months. When I got on Facebook a couple of years ago it was basically my college students who I was friends with. Which makes sense since it began as a college social network.

But recently I have been connecting more and more with others, especially those in ministry. That being said, Chris Forbes just released the free e-book:

Facebook for Pastors: How To Build Relationships And Connect With People Using The Most Popular Social Network On The Internet

Check it out. I just started reading and really like it. It gives a really great case for why pastors, church leaders, etc. need to be on Facebook, and Greg Atkinson does an awesome job in the foreward to the book.

Here is a little blurb about the book on Chris’s site:
