St. Ignatius believed that love should be demonstrated more through deeds than through words. Yet it’s so easy to use words—and now we can put them out there instantly via Facebook or other social media. Can we express love—truly—through such means?
Now that we are firmly in the Internet age—and I suspect we’ve already evolved to something beyond Internet, but I don’t have a term for it yet—part of our work in this world is to figure out how to use social media in ways that are edifying to the world.
So, I’m asking for your ideas. Please post some observations about how you have observed social media being used to express faith, hope, and love. How do you see yourself using Facebook, Twitter, and other sites to further the values dear to you?
