Is social media a big deal? Psh! Is the Pope Catholic?
You know it’s time to get on the social media bandwagon when even the Vatican has its own YouTube channel.
The 81-year-old Pope wisely said, “You must find ways to spread—in a new manner—voices and pictures of hope, through the internet, which wraps all of our planet in an increasingly close-knitted way.”
Amen to that!
President Obama’s use of YouTube videos to address the nation seems to be the 21st century’s version of FDR’S “Fireside Chats.” After a successful campaign, with over 1,800 YouTube videos propelling him to victory, Obama has decided to deliver a four-minute message over the popular web service every week.
I wonder if he’ll ever allow comments.
