Digital story of the Nativity

Yes I know it’s June, but this is still a good video: how social media, web and mobile would’ve impacted the Nativity story – as told through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, Google Maps, GMail, Foursquare, Amazon, etc:

YouTube: The Digital story of the Nativity

I originally used this as part of my presentation to the BU Careers Forum – Presentation: Social Media, where myself and Debbie Sadd were asked to follow-up our work on students and student digital footprints and “inform students on the benefits and disadvantages on social media [like] how students should monitor Facebook with potential employers, using Linked In, Twitter, etc, and how to use these to create an advantage rather than disadvantaging their appearance.” The video formed an introduction to social media and how it has become, for some, integral to every-day actions and situations (Facebook updates, tweets, etc).
