Creating new Christian communities in cyberspace

Simone Heidbrink (aka Hana Undertone) is a junior researcher at the Institute for Religious Studies at University of Heidelberg and has looked at social networking as it effects the creation of new kinds of faith communities via the internet.

Her presentation is called Following Jesus into Cyberspace? Web 2.0 and Social Networking as Generators of new Christian Communities of Practice?

She explains the background and theory of social networking and then poses several examples of religious communities, networks and resources on the web.
