The Reason for the Season via Social Media

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 12/25/2010 No comments
Merry Christmas from your favorite blog! ; (And Happy HoLLidays from your favorite blogger!) Here are a couple of heartwarming videos circulating through social media that are worth watching if you haven't seen them yet. Each tells the story of the birth of Jesus using social media as it would've been used had it been around more than 2,000 years ago.

The first video, titled "A Social Network Christmas," by Igniter Media, shows Joseph and Mary using Facebook, including when they update their relationship statuses to when they announce the birth of Jesus to Mary changing her profile picture to show their newborn. The second video, titled "The Digital Story of Nativity" (or "Christmas 2.0"), by Viral Videos, uses many social media sites--Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, GMail, Foursquare, and more. It shows everything from when Mary receives a text on her iPhone that she will be giving birth to the Son of God to Joseph creating a Facebook event for people to come meet the baby in Bethlehem to the Three Wise Men checking in using Foursquare.
