Stake Facebook page

Postby angell » Fri Sep 02, 2011 8:49 pm

Our stake president has asked about setting up a Facebook page just for our stake. Are there any guidelines or anything I need to watch out for?

I am not a frequent Facebook user, but I have setup a Facebook page for the company I work with. However, I don't like the connection because whenever I like something personally, it shows on the company page. I would like to avoid this situation with a stake page.

I'd refer your Stake President to Handbook 2: 21.1.22

Sake and ward Web sites may be created only by using the official Church Internet resources. Stakes and wards are not authorized to create other Web sites or blogs or otherwise have a Church-sponsored presence on the Internet.


I would read the rest of the section for exceptions, but as requested, I don't see much wiggle room unless someone higher (such as a Area Authority) approved it.

I'd also direct you to this 2004 policy letter that, at the time, shut down all external websites and email programs being used. This was when the official ward websites were introduced.

Although that letter is interesting from a historical perspective, the Handbook 2 section referred to by RussellHltn (Handbook 2: 21.1.22) is the current policy. It covers every point mentioned in that letter, but some of the wording is somewhat different. So we should only look to the Handbook as the authoritative source on this topic.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

No kidding. It came out more recently, so obviously it supersedes something issued in 2004.
