4th February marks a new Chapter in this Dream called Facebook, and like many dreamers, you never allowed the light to be dim and never listened to Dream Killers.
Today Facebook has provided a platform for all to express themselves, a platform for many to take their cause to a new height.
To me and many people, Facebook has given us a chance to propagate the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ to all corners of the Earth.
For everyone who desires to preach Christ Jesus but feel that they do not have the enabling environment, Facebook provided the environment and greater opportunity to do so.
Just think about it, Facebook has given more Than 7 Million individuals that opportunity to interact with a minimum of 5000 people per account. So each person has a platform in the form of their Facebook Wall to evangelise and reach out to at least 5000 people at a time.
Whenever you put up a Facebook post, These 5000 Facebook Friends will see this update and likely “leave a Comment” or “Like” these status updates, and thus also have the ability to share and further pass on the message to their own friends.
To take it to a higher level, Facebook has also given people, Companies, Celebrities and all the likes the opportunity to own a Facebook Page to also spread their messages. This is also another opportunity for anyone to provide a Facebook Page and spread the goodness of Jesus Christ.
Just relax, if you feel you don’t know how to do it, and you can’t use your Facebook Wall, Facebook Page etc., don’t worry, Facebook has given you yet another opportunity to utilise its Facebook Community Forums in the form of Facebook Groups. This utility allows you to set up a Group where people of like mind can come together and share their ideas on a common goal.
So you are still very much free to set up or join a Facebook Group and champion a cause on the propagation of the Word of God through Jesus Christ.
Facebook Apps and Facebook plugins.
Are you a Web Developer or a Blogger, relax, Facebook has given you an edge above others. Facebook has given you a means by which your blog or website can interact with your visitors on real-time.
Facebook has different Apps and website plugins that you can use to get the best out of your site visitors.
Facebook Comment plugin.
Take for an instance – the Facebook Comment App or Facebook Comment Plugin. This helps your website to have an interactive comment section, where your visitors can comment on real-time in your website or blog, and you can also have a personal interaction with your site visitors.
This Facebook feature has been very vital in the preaching of the Word of God through Christ Jesus and reaching out to a live audience and people who have interest or may not even be interested in what you have on your blog, but who are drawn by either the content of your site or the interactive nature of the comments on your site.
You can also have the other Facebook Apps or Facebook Plugins that will help your website or blog reach a wider audience, but the fact remains that you can use these technological breakthroughs by Facebook to help preach the Word of God through Jesus Christ and reach as many people as possible.
In this day and age, you have no excuse, so quit giving or trying to conceive or manufacture one.
So while I say a big Happy Birthday to Facebook Inc. And the Mark Elliot Zuckerberg’s Team for their hard work, I want to also personally thank Mark Elliot Zuckerberg for giving me and many people the opportunity to preach the Word of God to our Facebook Friends and also reach in to sow a seed of faith through our Facebook Wall updates to a greater number of people at a time.
Happy Birthday Facebook. May you live longer than your enemies have envisioned. God bless you.
