Archdiocese of Sydney to take over Xt3.com social networking site

.- Xt3 Media, developer of the Catholic social networking site Xt3.com, has come to an agreement with Archbishop of Sydney Cardinal George Pell to have the archdiocese take over the effort. Xt3.com was launched for Sydney World Youth Day 2008, with the support of the cardinal and the archdiocese. Following World Youth Day, the archdiocese and Xt3 Media expanded the site as a communications and broadcast platform throughout the Church.

Earlier this year, Xt3.com exclusively streamed the handover of the World Youth Day Cross in Rome on Palm Sunday.

The archdiocese will permanently take over the complete funding and resourcing of the site, a press release from Xt3 Media reports.

Robert Toone, co-founder of Xt3.com, said he was “delighted” with the outcome and said the move will ensure that Xt3.com becomes “embedded” into the daily life of the Catholic Church.

He characterized Xt3.com as “a significant step forward for the Catholic Church in its mission to reach out to and engage young people.”

Xt3 Media has changed its name to Kristos Media to avoid confusion. Kristos Media will continue to support Xt3.com and offer strategies, support, advice, and expertise to future World Youth Day organizers, including Madrid 2011.
