It’s finally up and running and ready for public consumption! I created a Facebook application called, Life in Student Ministry Reader. Basically, it’s another way to subscribe to this site and keep up with the latest youth ministry freebies, games, resources and articles. It feeds the latest three articles straight to your Facebook profile and also links to them in your sidebar.
My original idea was to use this Facebook application to feed youth group news and announcements to my students’ Facebook profiles and thereby easily make the info accessible to all their friends, as well. That application is still in the works. If you’re lucky, I may even offer that one as a free resource here sometime for you guys to use with your youth groups.
Another idea, inspired by a conversation with Adam McLane, is to make a Facebook application like this that feeds youth ministry posts from across various different authors and sites. Sounds like a great idea to me! I just have two questions for you all before I put it together, though: 1) Is there interest in a Facebook app like this? 2) Nominate a couple youth ministry sites that you’d like to see included. Leave your input in the comments.
In the meantime, if you’d like to add the Life in Student Ministry Reader to your profile, visit the application on Facebook and check it out.
