I find this story somewhat lacking in perspective, as if “the Church” in its online media usage and application is one monochrome body that only responds to the internet in one way.

I think the Church in this respect is not that unlike “Business” in that sense. There are businesses that market on the internet to great success and other businesses that have little to no online presence at all.
