We know how popular social media is. We know how important it is to teenagers. But in this course we’ll drive into understanding why all of this is so popular in the lives of teenagers.
Join Adam McLane in 5 sessions where you’ll learn about the driving forces behind social media use, explore current trends, get an overview of what’s popular as well as learn how to find this information for yourself as new platforms and trends emerge. You’ll also consider some pragmatic implications of social media on your youth ministry.
Note: This course isn’t about how to use social media in your ministry. It’s about how, why, and what teenagers are doing with social media.
