I have been checking out MyChurch and the nice set of community tools they have. They have kind of a Facebook vibe; it will be interesting to see how they evolve. It didn’t take long to get to be largest virtual community in our area (Augusta, Me.) but I’m not sure if that speaks more to the level of acceptance of these types of systems here in the remote north-east, than the overall popularity of MyChurch. The idea of virtual communities extending real communities is a pretty interesting one, but I wonder how it will playout with smaller churches and ministries that can’t muster the kind of global scale you find in Facebook or MySpace.
