Social Media and Religious Change

How do religious and spiritually oriented groups use social media? What impact does this use have on their relationship with religious institutions? How are notions of the sacred being redefined with the advent of social media? How are discourses on religion and the sacred being re-positioned and mobilised in social media such as blogs, Facebook, Twitter and in virtual worlds? How do mass and social media interact? To what extent are social media catalysing religious change? These are the main questions addressed in this book.
