Websites from Our Sunday Visitor Release 4.18

Social media features support member engagement

HUNTINGTON, IN - Our Sunday Visitor (OSV) Offertory Solutions Division announces social media enhancements to the Radius platform, the content management system for Basic and Faith In Action websites from Our Sunday Visitor.

Release 4.18 enables users to publish content onto selected social media platforms directly from the parish website.  The release also provides new users enhanced mobile functionality for the most popular website design template.
 
Web site administrators now have an easy way to reach parishioners to engage them in parish life and to inform them about parish events.  The update provides access to a social media presence for sharing and publishing content on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more.  Administrators may create and manage "follow" buttons, public-facing "share" buttons and social publishing functions.
 
According to Father John Sheridan, pastor at Cranberry Catholic Collaborative (CCC) located in the Archdiocese of Boston, the social media updates help to engage the parish community:  "Social media on our Collaborative (multi-parish) website brings people together.  It educates folks and is very practical to inform the community of certain events, Sacraments and activities going on at the church."
 
Fr. Sheridan also says parishioners are better informed:  "Social media on our website allows us to connect with parishioners on a daily basis and maintain that relationship with them.  It's a very encouraging tool."
 
Users expect a rich experience when accessing websites and social media, regardless of the device they use for access.  Release 4.18 enhances mobile user experience for new users of the Edge design for devices of all types.  This enhancement will be incorporated into currently installed Edge design websites over the next couple months.
