How to manage your church's reputation on Facebook

How to manage your church's reputation on Facebook

Managing your online reputation is crucial. Anyone and everyone out there has access to your website, Facebook page, and any other media that you have set up. Furthermore, anyone out there can say anything about you on your sites, and you just have to stand there and turn the other cheek.

People can honestly say the most bizarre things on the internet! One of my favourites was on a Facebook ad that I put out into the world: I had a bunch of people writing “Convert to Islam!” underneath, which was kind of the opposite of what I was intending (I laugh now but I was dying on the inside!).

But as Christians in an ever-evolving non-Christian world, we are bound to come across some online persecution.

Which is why today I thought I'd share some of my tips for maintaining your online reputation on Facebook.

I have a confession:

I have been on a little bit of a Facebook hiatus.

Not because I don’t want to post, or I don’t have the time to post [more on that here and here].

But because I’ve been feeling a little uninspired, and my well of content is coming up dry. So I decided that rather than sitting down and wishing for something interesting to happen, I’d sit down, brainstorm, and conjure up interesting posts with more intention.

This post is essentially my brainstorm session of the tips I need to keep in mind while I’m posting to Facebook, with actionable ideas that you can take away from them. If that sounds kooky I’m sure it’ll all make sense below! [At least I hope so!]
