2019 Internet Communications Working Group Annual Report

Since last Annual Session we have communicated virtually and monitored online activities. Depending on feedback from this Annual Meeting we may meet later this year to take stock of where things stand.

We originally focused on helping local Monthly Meetings, BYM, and its committees improve their use of electronic media. Within BYM, our committees have made some increased use of Zoom (group video conference set up via BYM office), Facebook, and electronic newsletters in the past year. Outside of BYM, more Quakers are blogging and dialoguing online than in the past in various configurations of open and closed Facebook groups, Twitter feeds, and other social media.

We continue to consider these Fundamental Questions:
(a) Is there any way to encourage and perhaps connect up some of these efforts?
(b) If the technical limits and comfort zones of older Friends are an obstacle, how could we realistically provide assistance?
(c) Can we learn from younger Friends what works and make it easier for older Friends to engage with the increasingly available internet resources?

We would love to hear from Friends how they answer these questions:
