The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on the Web
The purpose of the Community Color family of sites is to promote local web development. The directories also serve as a community directory. As such, I want to include important social organizations in a town, even if they do not have a local web site.
For large organizations, like the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I've chosen to create a profile page. This design helps the site maintain a local focus while providing access to important community resources.
The two primary internet sites of the LDS Church are www.LDS.org and www.Mormon.org. LDS.org is geared more toward communication within the organization. Mormon.org is geared to providing information about the organization.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has long been a pioneer in the use of communication technologies in spreading the word. Over the years, they have developed cutting edge broadcasting systems such as KBYU, and were among the first organizations to broadcast the biannual general conference through Internet technologies.
The local units of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are organized into Stakes and Wards. A Stake generally includes multiple wards. In most cases, the Stake has a building and the Wards are groups that meet within the building. In addition to Stake Houses, the LDS Churche has constructed temples throughout the world. At the time of this review, there were 13 Temples in Utah. These are in: Bountiful, South Jordan, Draper, Logan, Manti, Monticello, American Fork, Ogden, Provo, St. George, Salt Lake and Vernal.
LDS.org includes an intranet that allows members to access their local ward. At the time of this review, you could access this site through the Stakes and Wards directory.
The LDS.org web sites includes multimedia features like the broadcasts of LDS Conferences and fireside chats. It is one of the most active web sites from Utah and consistently ranks among the top web sites in the world. See Alexa Ranking below:
