Book Description

Getting #Married: Using Social Media to Celebrate the Sacred explains why and how social media can be used to celebrate holy matrimony with dignity, reverence, and joy. This guide, based on the author's personal and professional experience, provides easy-to-understand information about using web-based resources to:

> build a community, both virtual and real, of loving support;
> plan the wedding liturgy;
> share the sacrament with those who cannot attend in real life;
> capture and save content and conversation up to and through the blessed event.

Getting #Marriedincludes FAQs, a special section for clergy and a Linkography.

Meredith Gould, Ph.D. is the author of seven books, including The Word Made Fresh: Communicating Church and Faith Today(Morehouse) and The Catholic Home: Celebrations and Traditions(Doubleday). In addition to writing about faith, Dr. Gould is a sociologist who provides marketing communications and social media counsel to the healthcare industry and mission-based organizations.

What's not to love about the concept of this book? It makes me raise my eyebrows, on the one hand (social media? to celebrate the sacred?), but it also appeals to the deeply ingrained geek within. Gould shares her experience of using various social media outlets to celebrate her own wedding and gives us all a glimpse of yet another good way to use these tools!

More About the Author

Despite academic training that included completing a doctoral dissertation, Meredith Gould never intended to write books. After grinding out academic journal articles during her decade as a Sociology professor, she graduated to writing for regular folk.

An essayist and lifestyle reporter for nearly two decades, Gould was published in magazines and newspapers -- when she wasn't writing public relations blather about pest control and wall coverings. Some sort of strange interior, possibly bio-chemical and definitely psycho-spiritual thing happened after her first book was published in 1998.

"I guess I'm a book author," says Gould, who now has nine published books to her credit. She's also swift to point out that being a mid-list author is hardly lucrative. "Providing digital strategy and editorial services pays the mortgage."

Digital strategy? An early adopter of social media, Gould is a fierce evangelist for its value for building and sustaining community. Her most recent work is focused on how social media can and should be used by faith organizations. To that end, she founded a weekly Twitter-based chat (#ChSocM) that's focused on church social media. (Read more about that:
