Rice is has been a youth worker and worship leader, and now appropriately enough, lives in Palo Alto in Silicon Valley which is home to Facebook et al. So for a number of reasons, he is qualified to write a book about the impact on (church and other) community life of social networking. He has some excellent insights and helpful suggestions - and yes, whether we like it or not, Facebook is important. The stats of its usage are simply extraordinary.

THE FACEBOOK PHENOMENON
- Having started at Harvard in 2004, and then opened its doors to anyone over the age of 12 in 2005, it had grown by 2009 to such an extent that 70% of its members were outside the USA.
- By late 2008, the fastest growing demographic was 55-year old women!
- At the same time the 35-54 year old age group was growing 276% and the 25-34 group doubled.
- If Facebook was a country, it would be the 3rd largest in the world (dwarfed only by China and India).
Founder Mark Zuckerberg's ultimate goal is... to make Facebook the place where 'people live their digital lives.' (p61)

THE FACEBOOK EFFECT
Now even if other things crop up to replace/supplant it, there are big implications for those who live their lives online and depend on social networking. And as the author has a psychology masters, the book is at its most convincing when it draw on those who understand cyberlife's psychological impact. In particular:
1. Having an Audience
Emily Nussbaum, editor-at-large for New York Magazine, offers an example of how this works. She says what sets apart from the members of the `Facebook generation' from its predecessors is that they "assume they have an audience".

I read "The Church of Facebook" for an essay, but found it engaging and provoking, as well as easy to read. Oh ... and it's not "just" about Facebook. It specifically challenged my blogging habit and my community expectations. The critique of my generation (Generation Y) as one that lives with an invisible crowd of spectators and assumes, like a celebrity, that people are interested in posts such as "25 Random Things About Me" is fascinating and convicting. So is the suggestion that my generation approaches community as consumers who choose and use what we like rather than receiving and enriching what we're given with grace. "The Church of Facebook" is a bit more pro-internet than I am, personally, but nonetheless a positive contribution to conversation about Facebook, Twitter and blogging (from a Christian perspective) and well worth reading.

This has been one of the most interesting books i have read in the past year. it has great examples of phsycology behind social media, it is wrote from a personal approach and is very light hearted. if you feel challenged on your facebook use then read this first, with the introducton of timeline and this book i am now culling and rearranging my priorities to social media. Its not really about church but about groups of people doing the same this, read this book NOW, its is so good!!!
