Sunday Social Hour: Constance McMillen; should Deputies tweet?

Here’s a neat trick: We’ve been adding diocesan Facebook pages as well as those of cathedrals, bishops, and Episcopal-related nonprofit organizations to our “favorite pages.”

Check out the list so far at this link, and let us know if you know of a page that should be added. We can’t add individual churches, unfortunately, but you are more than welcome to post those links to our wall. Also, group pages work differently than fan pages; we can only add fan pages to this feature.

Not terribly much activity on the social media pages today (and Twitter is acting up, which isn’t unusual for a Sunday morning when I’m working on this post). But we did want to point to this rather amazing grassroots effort taking place on Facebook. Constance McMillen sued her school district (with the help of the ACLU) because she was not being allowed to take her girlfriend to the prom, and it’s gone massively viral. A Facebook page has sprung up with nearly 200,000 fans in just a few days.

In this video, she explains how amazed she is by how many people have supporting her.

Also, you may want to weigh in on this post at Seven Whole Days posted earlier this week, on allowing General Convention Deputies to use Twitter during the convention: Is Twitter Too Risky for General Convention?
