Asia Area Web Administrators Training was conducted on 1st to 3rd December, 2013 in Hong Kong. The training was organized by Asia Area media committee (Allen Anderson, Media committee Director and Steven Shiu, Web Administrator) under the direction of Asia Area Presidency to enable Asia Area Web Administrators to implement the new website that would have global consistent look and feel (design) with images and messages centered in Jesus Christ, the 1st Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve.
Participants / Countries included were India, Cambodia, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand and Mongolia. The training was provided by Church Head quarter team from Salt Lake included Bill Bush, Matt Robinson and Ken Smaellie.
The new Country Communication page will host the content that would provide members to have access to
- Area Presidency communication (Messages, training, local news and events, local Church History)
- Main member entrance to global gospel content (e.g., LDS.org language page or global site, Mormon Channel if available)
- Portal into other global or local Church sites (e.g., mormonnewsroom.org, mormon.org, familysearch.org)
- Social media integration (e.g., global and/or country-specific Facebook page)
Asia has a total of 3.5 billion people, or half the world's population live in Asia. In order to proclaim the Gospel to a larger audience Internet is the best means and a very important tool. The new website with integrated resources and social media plug-in will enable the objective of the First Presidency to have Focused and simplified website in all areas. The new website would bless the lives of many and provide a means to learn the Gospel.
