As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we have been given the mandate to share God’s light and truth with those around us. Social Media platforms give us a unique opportunity to flood the earth with positive thoughts, imagery, and messages. Elder David A. Bednar has invited us all to share the good we have in our lives. Find more information about this invitation and how to #sharegoodness on social.lds.org.
Some suggested social media guidelines:
1) Use your own genuine voice and pictures.
2) Be positive as you share the goodness from your own life.
3) Respect Intellectual Property.
4) Remember that social media posts are forever.
