SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- Proclaimed as “God’s Myspace” by Cnet.com, MyChurch.org launches its public beta version today to provide social networking tools for church communities. During private beta testing, more than 100 churches signed on to investigate how they can use social networking to extend their communities online and between Sundays.
MyChurch.org is a free service to churches and individuals, with monthly subscriptions available to churches desiring more support, features, and bandwidth. MyChurch is cross-compatible with many of the existing social networking sites – for example, users can invite all their Myspace friends with one click, and they can import their blog feeds if they maintain a weblog on another platform.
MyChurch provides both the user and the church with social networking tools. Users can share photos, add and arrange their friends, keep a personal calendar, and write comments and emails to each other. Churches can moderate a team blog, send bulletins to church groups or to the entire congregation, organize events on their social calendar, share sermon podcasts and photo albums, and network with other churches.
MyChurch.org was founded by a husband and wife engineering team to deliver Web 2.0 to church communities. With an emphasis on clean layouts, authentic community, and smooth usability, MyChurch.org is completely void of advertisements and steers away from these pitfalls that have plagued Myspace.
