A while back I posted a link to a couple of articles Tim Chester has written on the good and bad of Facebook. Tim has been busy – you can now find his third and fourth articles on the subject here and here.
The third article addresses the concern that the medium of Facebook (and indeed online social networking in general) is inclined towards projecting positivity. Tim asks,
Is your Facebook self more attractive than your real world self?
The real question is: Am I trying to do self-identity or am I finding identity in Christ? Or, Am I looking for approval from others through my words or approval from God through his gospel word?
