The Anatomy of a Perfect Facebook Video by Victor Blasco
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to producing a video for social media. If you want it to have an impact, you’ll have to think about how audiences consume content across different social networks and then tailor your video for each one.

In this article, I’ll be discussing some of the things you’ll want to consider when producing a video for Facebook.
I’ve broken down the article into the following sections:

  • Video types: what works best and why? Company Videos, live videos, explainer videos and more.
  • A brief discussion on video duration.
  • Recommendations on audiovisual resources and techniques.
  • Optimizing for better reach and engagement.
  • Timeline Videos vs. Story Videos, what’s the difference?

Connecting Your People in the Community by Jay Sandt
Churches go to great lengths connecting to their member and visitors. This type of connection is no different from organizations connecting to their customers. After all aren’t church members and their visitors the ones that largely fund the church, just like when customers buy products from companies, the money made on the sale funds the company.

I would venture to say there’s a different kind of connection after reading Seth Godin blog entry. Go ahead and read his blog, I’ll wait for you to come back.

What would happen if churches built horizontal relationships instead of vertical ones? An example of horizontal relationships, would be churches connecting unemployed people to open positions in the area or company owners in the congregation, connecting families with appropriate daycare facilities for their children in the community, or helping people find local contractors and other trades that give a fair price for their work. As Seth says the church would be the matchmaker.

Connecting people should come naturally to churches because they are trying to connect people into groups and other church functions. However, it appears churches are better at the vertical connections which mostly benefits the church, instead of the horizontal connections, where they don’t benefit but the two parties they bring together do. Does connecting people really happen, or as Seth points out, are organizations afraid of losing control? What would they be afraid of? A family leaving the church and going to another church, losing community sponsorships, or ministering in certain parts of the community. I have personally witnessed some of the territorial disputes among churches.

Should the church help connect people to others, even if it means losing a family? Yes. An organization should be seen as a helper in the community and on a personal level to the family, instead of a hindrance. It’s better for the organization to have the family speak good about it, then have ill feelings towards the organization that every one finds out.

Your Web Content Checklist: 5 Must-Have Items by Stephen E. Jenkins for Ministry Tech
Including content that will both provide useful information for members and attract visitors is the most crucial part of having a church website. Church websites that do not provide proper content are as useful as not providing any information at all.
Here are a few examples of essential content every church website should provide. It would be beneficial to incorporate these items into your church website. By doing so, you won't miss the opportunity to attract individuals who may visit your church or inconvenience current members who may be looking for specific information.

Why Your Church Needs to Use Video More in 2018 by Jonathan P. Howe for Thom S. Rainer
For the past few years, podcasts have been the hot new medium on the Internet. And while they are still growing in number and in popularity, a relatively more traditional medium has recently experienced a comeback of sorts on the Internet. That medium is video.
Online video has exploded over the past few years with the switch from chronological social media timelines to algorithmic ones. This impacts your church as well. If you’re still posting text only updates about what’s going on in your church—on either Facebook or Twitter—your updates are likely being suppressed and are not reaching much of your audience. Video can help fix that. Video can increase the exposure of your church’s ministry now more than ever. Here are five reasons why:
