What is Social Media Sunday?
Traditionally, Sunday is a day of rest. In today’s fast-paced world, that’s not always the case. Business, family and preparing for the upcoming week, can make Sunday another “workday.” We use smartphones, tablets and wearables to help us juggle Sunday’s “work.” But mobile technology plays another important role in our Sunday rituals.
For those attending Sunday services, technology can be a benefit and not an interruption as seen through a growing national movement. According to a popular church marketing site, Social Media Sunday is a day to “encourage people of faith to share the gospel and be the church online.” This comes in the form of sharing inspirational quotes from a sermon, posting pictures and tagging others to help them feel the same uplifting emotion that is stirred within the pews.
This holiday season, AT&T has named November 22nd Social Media Sunday as a part of its national Inspired Mobility campaign. It’s the time of the year when we are full of gratitude, joy and hope. Whether you attend church, live stream a Sunday service, or listen to inspirational music while getting ready for the upcoming week, here’s how you can participate in this next Social Media Sunday using the hashtag #InspiredMobility:
- Invite your friends and family to join the Inspired Mobility movement
- Share an inspirational message on Facebook
- Encourage someone you know on Twitter
- Take a photo of something that inspires you on Instagram
- Check into your place of worship using Facebook or Swarm
Social Media Sunday is an all-day affair. Feel free to post after your worship service too. For more information on Inspired Mobility, visit about.att.com/mediakit/inspiredmobility.
