What does the term "social media" mean to you?
Perhaps you think it’s a tremendous waste of time, or maybe you don’t quite understand it and you’re afraid it’s too late to learn. Maybe you think it’s a fun way to pass the time, but nothing that should be taken too seriously. Perhaps for some of you, the fact that you’ve actually navigated away from Facebook to read this post is a miracle in and of itself.
Whatever social media is, it’s clearly the future. You don’t need to be a marketing guru to know this. Facebook is 1 billion strong, the best way to start a revolution is to "hashtag" it, and kindergarteners are learning on iPads.
As Bob Dylan mused in the 60’s: “The times, they are a-changin’.”
Here at Accordance, we don’t shy away from change; we embrace it. Our passionate team constantly seeks to adapt to new technologies and create an even more powerful tool for Bible study and research.
In this "brave new world" of social media, we can now go beyond merely interacting with you when you make a purchase or need support; we can actually get to know you as real people.
Perhaps this is why social media is so attractive for businesses, bands, brands and everyone in between. It’s a democracy. The environment of social media is one where the user is highly empowered. Pushy shenanigans and sheisty sales tactics need not apply. We believe this is a very good thing.
Now more than ever, we want to get to know you. We want to converse with you, dialogue with you and hear your ideas. We want to know what works with our software and what doesn’t. After all, our mission is to serve you with an excellent product.
So come on in. Put up your feet, and stay a while. The conversation is only a click away.

For those who don't keep up with the forum, here is Joel's post about our latest venture in cyberspace:
As many of you have undoubtedly noticed, we have been making a concerted effort to not only continue to expand the program's capabilities and resources, but also our method of reaching more people more effectively. We have a Twitter account, a Facebook page, a Blog with RSS/FeedBurner feed, a video podcast: Lighting the Lamp about to go into full swing, and now our very own YouTube Channel!
On our YouTube page you'll see a link to a new short video we've developed for those trying to get a feel for Accordance, called What is Accordance?. We've also posted the English Study Demo (part 1 and part 2) for easier viewing. Don't forget to tell your friends, leave comments on the page, and let us know what you think!
