Institutionally, however, it is a different story. While exercising and espousing caution, the Church is noted for embracing social media and all the good that the internet has to offer, from its various YouTube channels to its harnessing of thousands and thousands of volunteers and their home PCs worldwide in the massive genealogical indexing effort.
This embrace was especially evidenced this week, when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg came to speak at BYU. There have been many reports about Zuckerberg’s visit in the media, but I was most interested to read about Zuckerberg’s remarks in Larry Richman’s blog.
Officially, Larry is the Director of Product Awareness for curriculum materials for the Church. But unofficially, he is what may be the Church’s top social media evangelist. His blog was originally called ldsWebguy, but has since been renamed LDS Media Talk.
Welcome Larry to MormonDaddyBlogs. Don’t miss his take on the Zuckerberg’s remarks, Facebook is Not Just a Face Book.
