Facebook wasn't around when I was in college - and that was not that long ago, but being Facebook friends with college-aged women (and some a bit older), I have always been shocked at what some people will post. Pictures where they are intoxicated, scantly clad, or worse is way more normal than it should be.
Here are some other interesting stats regarding young women and Facebook:
- 21% of women age 18-34 check Facebook in the middle of the night
- 63% use Facebook as a networking tool
- 42% think it’s okay to post photos of themselves intoxicated
- 79% are fine with kissing in photos
- 58% use Facebook to keep tabs on “frenemies”
- 50% are fine with being Facebook friends with complete strangers
There are some other disturbing things from the survey (1 in 20 women use Facebook to "hook up" with a guy), but I'll let you read that for yourself.
What if 21% of women got up to pray in the middle of the night? What if 50% of women were proud, open Christians? I have friends that are members of Facebook groups like "1,000,000 Christians on Facebook," and "God is Good" and at the same time, being members of groups like "I $#@&ing love XYZ" and "My boobs get my bar tab paid," which are two of the more tame ones.
If our goal was to spend as much time with God as we do on Facebook (and I'm guilty of it too), then our walk with Christ would strengthen exponentially.
