MEDIA ADVISORY, Jan. 19, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Christians now have a powerful new technology which they can use to share video messages of faith and spread the Gospel to a whole new audience for the first time in history: Youtoo, the nation’s first social TV network. Youtoo invites Christians to send their video messages of faith directly into the living rooms of 15 million American households on TV. The Youtoo Peoplemercial™ which just launched this January, allows Christians to record and upload a 30-second video that is aired just like a real 30-second television commercial on national cable TV. All Peoplemercials™ will be free through January 31, so Christians are encouraged to act now to share their faith for free with their fellow Americans. Christians have an opportunity to take back the TV by putting themselves and their testimony on air.
Dr. Lawrence Terlizzese with Probe Ministries believes that the Youtoo Peoplemercial™ is an ideal tool for Christians to take control of the technology that is so pervasive in our modern world and make positive use of it. He urges Christians to make their voices heard and to share their statements of faith to evangelize and spread the Gospel.
“Youtoo offers a revolutionary opportunity for Christians to express their faith on national TV,” explains Dr. Terlizzese. “This new technology has astounding implications for how the Church will communicate on TV. The potential for evangelism and teaching are boundless. Christians already make extensive use of Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, now Youtoo brings these mediums together with the focal point centered on TV. Youtoo combines the mass accessibility of the internet with the persuasive power of television.”
Everyone can sign up at Youtoo.com by creating a free account and then follow three simple steps to upload a Peoplemercial™. Using the Internet or a mobile device, Christians can be on TV and participate in the programming with a few simple clicks. An online “air-check” or video of the actual commercial broadcast of their Peoplemercial is available to share with everyone in their social network online. Each TV appearance can also be seen on Youtoo.com.
Dr. Terlizzese supports the Youtoo Peoplemercial as a way to use technology to bring glory to God. He cites Matthew 5: 13-16 in which Jesus calls his followers to be light and salt to the world. He urges Christians to embrace technology to share the good news. According to Dr. Terlizzese., as believers, Christians should engage in popular culture in order to create positive content that brings light to the world.
Dr. T. earned his doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has taught theology and religion at the graduate and undergraduate levels. He is the author of two books and several articles all relating to the interface of theology and technological trends.
The founder and CEO of Youtoo is entrepreneur Chris Wyatt, who also founded GodTube.com which Newsweek touted as the “Christian answer to YouTube.” GodTube.com became one of the fastest growing websites of 2007 according to comScore when Mr. Wyatt launched it.
Youtoo.com is a whole new way to be on TV. Youtoo is a revolutionary app and social network connected to an actual cable television network that allows you to be on TV in a few simple clicks. Youtoo is redefining the way viewers interact and engage with traditional television.
