What is the best Christian social network?
I would argue that the best Christian social network is not a one specifically intended for Christians, but finding a like-minded group of Christians on one of the more traditional social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Facebook is a great way to connect with members of the local church, and those who support social justice causes that many Christians are passionate about. Facebook allows Christians to stay abreast of the news, and what is going on among their friends and family. Twitter is another exciting social network for Christians looking to connect with one another. Popular Christian authors, musicians, and leaders are active on Twitter. Among them are Ann Voskamp, Tim Keller, and John Mark McMillan.
The accounts of these Christian celebrities often draw together believers who want to comment and wrestle with pieces of scripture and Christian culture. Instagram is a source of inspiration, and the hashtag function allows for believers to connect with one another through common tags, like "#whengodshowsoff" and shared images of experiences special to Christians (visits to the Vatican, visits to Israel, morning quiet times and sunsets reflecting the beauty of their Creator).
Whatever avenue Christians use to connect with one another, they will likely reap the benefits of an enriched Christian community, a deeper level of understanding with Christians worldwide, and a greater awareness of social justice issues and community events. This is particularly true if Christians remain active within traditional social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram rather than isolated social networks designated for Christians.
