6. Priests for Life
If you’ve ever tried running a Facebook page, you know that it’s hard work to keep pages updated and fans interested simultaneously. Priests for Life, a Catholic pro-life religious order that works in conjunction with their family of pro-life affiliations, manages to keep their fans happy and their pages active at the same time. This is all while running not one, not two, but seventeen active pro-life Facebook pages!
These diverse pages are aimed at youth, minorities, professed religious, post-abortive women and men, and the average Joe. Priests for Life caters to a very broad demographic. To help their older volunteers use social media, they have even written a handbook with guidelines on how to use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. These valiant efforts definitely deserve a spot in this list.
