Social networks

The Church has created official channels on social networks such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ to present links and video messages, targeted to those who are not members of the Church. Note that these are channels on main sites which are certainly not official sites of the Church, and that other channels viewed on these sites may link to non-Church content, including content that may be quite contrary to Church teachings.
