I do think it's weird that Facebook and Snapchat aren't included on the list.  Snapchat is a huge thing with the youth in our area.

I have no idea about Snapchat but I was sitting with the sister missionaries a couple of months ago during Sacrament meeting and they were both on Facebook the entire time talking to investigators and setting up appointments.  I think IIRC that Facebook was one of the missionary tools the Church is encouraging and utilizing.

At least that was their story 🙂.

With the exception of Facebook, and very very seldom Twitter, I don't do any social media.  Last Sunday I tried to get into Facebook, and I was not blocked.  Either my phone was bypassing the WiFi, or it hasn't been blocked on our router.  When I mentioned the news of social media blocking, our bishop indicated that FB was included -- even though it wasn't in the list that I saw.

Anyone here notice if FB is blocked where they are?

I have a hotspot on my phone so this block would not affect me.  I would guess there are many others with this feature also.

We just use our own data rather than the church's wifi.  I think most people who care about the blocks sites will just do that.

I use the wifi until the building gets crowded and the internet slows.  My daughter and all the seminary kids use a VPN app that is a work around the firewall, and nothing is blocked.
