I'm The mens stake single adults 31+ lider

We want to join forceses with other citys next to us in doing a facebook group .
So we can all be in a single group and share invites ...

I'm in Baja California Mexico ... WE are debating what name to call it ?

Is there any oficial statement on it?

Handbook 2: 21.1.22

I would draw your attention to the following: "On occasion, official Church Web sites may be approved for other purposes, such as multistake projects, special events, and young single adult activities and organization. To seek approval for such a site, the organization’s priesthood leader submits a request stating the purpose and need to a member of the Presidency of the Seventy or the Area Presidency."

This is something your stake president would want to discuss in his next Coordinating Council meeting. If the other stake presidents supported the idea, the area authority would know how to obtain permission from the area presidency to set up an appropriate web site.

Just because it's done, doesn't mean it's proper.

The suggestions you've been given are based on what is proper.

If you want something regional, then your stake is going to have to work with the other stakes. You can't just start a website and expect them to follow. That coordination has to be done though the stake presidents - at least to initiate it.
