The Anglican Church of Canada has launched an official page on Facebook, the popular social networking Web site, joining other Anglican groups such as justgeneration.ca, the youth initiative of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), and Council of the North.
Web manager Brian Bukowski called it “an exciting new step.” “We’re tapping into a community that we haven’t before,” he said. “There are millions of people on Facebook right now, and we want to engage them.”
Facebook users will be able to read news, view photos, watch videos, and keep track of national church events. When Facebook users become a “fan” of the Anglican Church of Canada, they will receive automatic updates and can post content on the church’s page.
Visitors can see the page at www.facebook.com/pages/The-Anglican-Church-of-Canada/28081558750
