Social scripture study

Postby sbradshaw » Mon Sep 15, 2014 9:34 pm

I'm interested in exploring ways that social media can be used to enhance scripture study – group scripture study, crowdsourced contributions, sharing what you're learning, etc. By social media I mean any sort of online technology that facilitates communication – whether it be social media that already exists, like Facebook, or social media that has yet to be invented.

Sharing is not only an act of faith, but if properly implemented can be a major motivation for those who struggle to read and study on their own.

I have a few ideas already, but what are your thoughts [esteemed forum readers]?

I think the bofm365 on Instagram ( is a good example of enhancing scripture study through social media. Elder Bednar even said that it "is a prime example of a simple idea that has allowed members to foster spiritual growth through social media" (
