America! You Have a New Social Network Incoming…

America! It looks like you have a new social network incoming called USA.Life.

(I realise that a social network online is generally to be used by people on the internet, but theres something about this that feels a little American focused).

Perhaps its the Pro-America algorithm?

USA.Life Social Network

Or maybe its something about the banner on its website…

Check out the USA.Life website for more information (, and a video that seems to have disabled embedding).

Are you tempted to sign up to USA.Life?

Facebook Christmas Cover Photo Collection

Every now and then, people find us after doing search for a combination of words that we wouldn’t normally expect. An example of this has been the flood of people search for Facebook Nativity or Facebook Christmas Cover Photos. (Cover photos, are what you find on the top of a Facebook profile)

Well… this has ended up inspiring a random session on Photoshop, which then led to The Church Sofa offering a couple of Christmas Cover Photos a couple of years ago.

I’ve updated the original images to match the up to date measurements for Facebooks Cover Photos

Please feel free to download the below, link back here, and use to your hearts content:

(Left clicking, right clicking, then clicking “Save Image As” should do the trick.)

Need Some Good News?

Have you ever woken up, and checked the news, wondering what else is wrong with the world? Maybe with something like this going through your head?

The Sofa cant shake the feeling that the world is filled with bad news story followed by bad news story. (At least according to the newspapers anyway…). Well The Sofa has cracked a little, and has created The Good News Page on Facebook.

The Good News Page is there to talk about the good stuff in the world.

The Good News Page is there to put something positive into your Facebook feed.

If you like the idea, can you spare The Good News Page a like, and get some good news into your Facebook world.

New Ways To Accidentally Create Moral Outrage in Church

The Church. For all its faults, generally doesn’t do a bad job at being a mad wide personality ranging group of people. The thing is, there is a lot of different people involved in Church. The chances are, someone is going to end up offended in someway… and it will probably be sooner rather then later. We’ve asked around and found the following potential ways to create moral outrage in a Church:

  1. Suggest changes to the coffee rota! (Or worse… change the coffee without checking with people first!)
  2. Mention Donald Trump during a sermon.
  3. It turns out that the day you’re doing anything “up front” is NOT the day to forget your flies AND your underwear.
  4. Have a really bad week, which is then followed by a really bad Saturday, followed up by a really bad Sunday morning, during which you accidentally stub your toe and swear under your breath. Infront of the wrong person.
  5. Casually mention you enjoy watching the wrong TV show or series of movies. (EG. Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter…)
  6. Have a different opinion to the wrong people about the wrong things. Share these opinions.
  7. Wear a t-shirt about drinking beer to a Sunday morning service.
  8. Put the chairs out a little differently…
  9. Click on a dodgy link in Facebook… spam the nervous-about-Facebook-old-dear with dodgy links.
  10. Suggest that the worship team tries something newer then Shine Jesus Shine.

Any others out there?
