Facebook fanpage for your church

February 2nd, 2009

The other day I created a fan page for myself on Facebook as a bit of a joke. It didn’t last long as I am not one who is into self promotion!

Anyway this gave me an idea. I wonder if churches could all create a Facebook fan pages for their church. That way people who use Facebook can become a fan of their own church. Then as people read their profiles and see who you are a fan of, they can then access the church’s fan page.

On your fan page you could include information about the church, service times and general updates. People from your church could then interact with each other and those not from your church can check it out. The cool thing about it is you can access fan pages even if you are not a Facbook user. You just have to be a user to create one.

Just a thought. Let me know what you think and if you end up doing it!

PS. Here’s the link to the page if you want to give it a try – http://www.facebook.com/advertising/?pages#/pages/create.php. Just remember for creating you have to be logged in as a Facebook user.
