The BEST church social media
Want To Be More Connected?
Ever feel like you wish you knew more people at your church, or could get more plugged in with your church community? It can be hard to balance work, family, personal and still make it to those community nights or church events that help build those lasting friendships. What if there was a Social Media app for your church? A platform that allows you to build relationships with the people in your church community and never miss a single post from your leaders and friends? TUVU is the new church social media app that is strengthening Christian communities all over the country!
What Is Church Social Media?
Church social media is a new kind of platform that allows you to share photos, videos, prayer requests and connect with other members of your church without the unwanted, graphic content that accompanies traditional social media. TUVU is the modern and wholesome way to get plugged in with your church community.
While nothing can replace being together in person, technology is such a powerful tool to stay connected with your community when you don’t have the luxury of being within the four walls of the church building together. With app accessibility on both your desktop and phone, TUVU is your church community - with you wherever you go!
Benefits Of Building Connection On a Private Platform:
It doesn’t take much time on mainstream social media to see that it is not the most uplifting and edifying place. As Christians, we NEED community every day of the week, not just Sundays. But it’s difficult to truly experience that in the swamp and noise of social media.
Not only that, but invasive algorithms make it difficult to even see your church’s posts on traditional platforms. Between the ads, suggested posts and algorithms, you often have to go directly to an account if you want to stay updated on their content.
Accountability Changes Everything
We aren’t suggesting you ditch traditional social media altogether. It can be a great tool to stay connected with friends from all over, discover new trends and content you love! But the downside is you can’t always control what you are going to see, and anonymous accounts post without accountability. TUVU subscription model ensures accountability, so you can scroll with peace of mind. Our kids are becoming desensitized to things we never imagined would be at their fingertips. You shouldn’t have to choose between community and compromise, and neither should they.
How Is Social Media Affecting Our Families?
Studies show young people are likely to have substantially higher rates of depression, 13-66%, than those who spend less time on social media. This highlights the importance of what kind of content young people are exposed to. What if we could ensure they are scrolling through uplifting and edifying content? Or what if we could guarantee they wouldn’t see pornographic images or graphic desensitizing videos when they swipe up to connect with their friends?
This is where church social media comes in! We have created a platform made JUST for your church with your family in mind. We saw a massive need in the social media space, because we have run into these complicated situations ourselves. We have kids who want mainstream accounts to stay up to date with their youth groups, and friends from church. But all it takes is one glance at the Explore page or one jarring “suggested post" to know why we wrestle with whether it is truly good for their heart, mind and spirit.
Why Doesn’t Church Social Media Already Exist?
Building the technology to create a new social media platform requires a lot of time and resources. On top of the building costs, there is the cost of maintenance, management, and moderation. TUVU provides a way for your church to have its own private, premium social media platform without the daunting cost and energy it takes to build the technology. With TUVU, you can have your own digital community without the stress of building or maintaining it.
