Thanks for noticing that and posting the link. The page linked to from that section (internet.lds.org
) is particularly instructive in the additional details and examples it gives. To my thinking, this is indeed a loosening of the restrictions previously given.
But... I already see a contradiction in their examples. One example of an appropriate practice is this...
After receiving permission from the bishop, the ward Relief Society presidency creates a blog that will include news, uplifting messages, lesson schedules, and photos from recent activities.
...but then an example of an inappropriate thing is this...
A stake creates a website with a calendar of all upcoming meetings, activities, and events.
Reason: Websites, blogs, and social media profiles should not duplicate tools that are already available on LDS.org.
To me, the Relief Society blog with news, uplifting messages, lesson schedules and photos is absolutely duplicating tools that are already available on LDS.org. Specifically, the newsletter and lesson schedule tools.
