Focus on Relationships

  • Connect with old and new friends. Reach out to people who live near and far.
  • Give genuine and positive compliments like: “Congratulations!” “I am so proud of you!” “Thank you for sharing!” and “I love this!”

“There’s a girl I know from high school that I haven’t seen or talked to in years, but we are friends on Facebook. I kept thinking about her after seeing one of her posts, so I decided to reach out. I sent her a message and asked how she was doing. She was so happy that I thought of her. I know it was just something small, but I think things like that can make a big difference. It’s nice to know that people care about you.”

Family Relationships

“This week I made it a point to reach out to people and be positive on social media and I definitely noticed a difference.I connected with people I haven’t talked to in a while and feel happier overall. The positivity from commenting and messaging people on social media has carried over into other areas of my life. I’ve texted people just to give them a genuine compliment, asked to speak to a customer service employee’s manager to say they were helpful—I am even being more kind to my husband.”

How to Share
Girl on Phone

Be genuine and authentic.

Be yourself as you reach out to others and show love.

“The happiness [that members] brought with them and the way I felt around them was undeniable. They didn’t preach to me about God. It was simply in their very being, their lifestyle, their choices, their actions, and reactions. When I looked at them, I said to myself, ‘That is how I want to live. That is where I want to be in life.’”

“Our messages should be truthful, honest, and accurate. We should not exaggerate, embellish, or pretend to be someone or something we are not.” —David A. Bednar

Ask questions and involve people.

Share Light

Your profile should reflect who you are as a disciple of Christ.

Avoid posting things that are offensive or contentious. Ask yourself, “Who will people decide I am if all they know is what is on my social media page?”

Give context to what you share.

Express what the content you are sharing means to you and why you are sharing.

What to Share

“I exhort you to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth— messages that are authentic, edifying, and praiseworthy—and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.” —David A. Bednar

Uplifting Content

You can help others feel God’s love by sharing about what you are grateful for, people you love, positive experiences and media that inspires you.

Michelle felt prompted to share the light of Christ online. She said, “I felt that if I could uplift one person each day, it would be enough.” She posted pictures of the Savior and quotes from general authorities along with whatever she was impressed to say.

Recently a woman from the Philippines read one of Michelle’s posts, and they became friends. Michelle has been helping her through some difficult times. One day Michelle got the following message: “Thank you for helping me. You were there during the darkest time in our lives. Your comforting words were our strength to face all those challenges. We would like you to know we are praying for you. We love you, and even though I have not seen you in person, I feel your Spirit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

—Michelle, USA

Speak of the Savior

Elder Neil L. Andersen counsels to talk more of Christ by being open on social media about your trust in Christ. “We care more about being His followers than being liked by our own followers,” he said.
