As much effort as the Church puts into these videos, I don't believe that
they are as effective as the corny yet poignant "A message from your
neighbors" videos from back in the early '90s. As a young child I
became aware of who Mormons were and some of the core tenets of what they
believed two decades before I finally joined the Church itself. YouTube
isn't nearly as effective a medium for sharing Gospel messages as
television used to be, especially since on YouTube, for every video the Church
or a Church member puts out, there are about a hundred nasty, hate-filled
anti-Mormon videos to be found in response—not to mention all of the vile
things that people are willing put into comments when they are able to hide
behind the guise of anonymity that the internet provides them.
Hooray for truth and light....
I'm surprised how many have comments disabled. Another interesting thing
to know would be how much each view cost the Church (on average). There is a
difference between organic views, and promoted views.
There are 10 times more positives than negatives.
How many hits did people leave the site positive and how many negative? Hits
are not an indication of acceptance. Just the interest level.
Thanks for putting this together!
what about the shaytards?
