Element is a youth group’s website that really wanted to utilize Facebook, since all their kids are on it, to keep their website up to date. They didn't want to have to update Facebook and a website. What I did was hook into Facebook and any time they add a new wall post, photo album, video or event it automatically updates their website. The wall posts show up on the home page keeping everyone up-to-date with what Element is talking about.
- Little to no updates required... but it is easy to update
- Feeds Wall Posts, Events, Photo Albums and Videos from Facebook Page
- Easy to Create new pages and contact forms
- Easy to share pages with any social media sites
The big value in having the content on Facebook and pulling it over to your website is allowing people to still have the ability to like, comment, and tag all of your content. The social media aspect to will be very beneficial. What if you have an event and post pictures to your Facebook page. What if you happen to get a picture of someone from the group with a couple of their friends. You post it in your album and then their friends get tagged in your album. Their friends might not have known what your group was about at the time but now they have a link to your Facebook page your website and all its content. You didn't do anything more than post a picture of them on your Facebook Page. Social media is an amazing way to get the word out about your group and get them familiar with your website.
If you are looking for a great place for you teenagers to hang out and build great relationships with other kids and the leaders then Element (Elemint.org) might be what you have been missing.
