Valid points - we don't want to disenfranchise (so to speak) the elderly and technically less-able members. Feel free to offer suggestions on how we can make communication between tech-savy and tech-non-savy users possible and easier. In what I do, I try to make sure that local priesthood leaders get to choose whether or not using a tool in their unit makes sense. As you come up with ideas, please post them on our social media tips/hints page: Sharing the Gospel online
If you use Facebook, Twitter, or some other social network in your ward, branch, stake, or district, I'd love to know about it. Plus, if you've got an idea on how you'd like to use social media in your unit, or to help in your calling, or an idea on how we can use social media to help with welfare efforts like the Christchurch earthquake, or the recent Japanese disaster, etc, I'd love to hear about that to. Please, send me an email explaining your ideas and a link to your page/group/site/account (if your unit has one): firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not out to be Big Brother. Whether your site is official (approved by area presidency), unofficial (with the right "unofficial" notice in place), or completely off the chart (new idea? something we haven't seen yet?) please send me an email. I'm interested in seeing how you are using, or how you'd like to use social networks. I want to know how we can facilitate using those tools wherever possible and appropriate. I can't say what all we're working on, but it's exciting stuff. I can't make promises about when these social tools will be available.
PS Thanks for the links so far!
