As I first read the posting from Elder Bednar's comments yesterday, my first impressions were that these comments were going to stir up considerable controversy and comments. My first of the morning thoughts this morning were on another time when I believe something very similar occurred.., thus my Banner update is in response and support.

Seeing as social media is becomming more and more a part of the world of communication it wouldn't surprise me if members are called on missions that are strictly to do missionary work from their computers.

After the excitement wears off lets look at the motivation behind this call to action. The Church realizes that the internet/social media has been very effective in presenting information detrimental to the Church. This is an effort to counteract the negative influences that are effecting some members. This is a little too much "multi-level marketing motivation" for my taste.
