Because sharing is good for everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to BooDroo. I’ve been working on BooDroo for over a year and we’ve been testing it at St. Barnabas Church (Bronx, NY) for several months.

The BooDroo project was borne out of my experiences as a web developer and social media consultant for churches and non-profits. I set out to build something that would have a better signal-to-noise ratio than Facebook or Twitter and would,...Continue reading
Pope Benedict XVI released his message for this year’s World Communications Day (which will be May 12th), with the theme Social Networks: portals of truth and faith; new spaces for evangelization.

- The Pope is using TweetDeck, but used Twitter for iPad for the first tweet.
- The iPad nearly tumbled when the assistants confusedly picked it up and popped the smart cover off!

If you run a few different websites, you might have received a message at some point from a person by the name “Jovana Milutinovich” asking if she could translate a particular page on your website.
