I love the start page on the FamilySearch website. I would like to see this feature make its' way onto the smart phone app.
I have grown up with social media, I currently study social media in college and I work at a middle school. I have felt, studied and seen how social media has a huge impact on our lives every day. The feature of scrolling through a feed is a habit that has been engrained into most people in upcoming generations. Unfortunately we all know too well how damaging social media can be when it is used inappropriately.
Family History is a tool has been proven many times to boost self esteem and success in general. I wish I was more drawn to the FamilySearch app than to my main social networking apps. I strongly believe if changes to followed ancestor's would show up in a feed on my phone similar to how it shows on the computer, I would spend more time learning about my family history.
To whoever may be reading this, please recognize a desperate need to create wholesome alternatives to the use of social media. I believe family history services are perfectly positioned to make a very needed and positive change for our future generations.
Can you please clarify which feature on the FamilySearch start page you like? Is it the Get Started process?
Thank you for your idea!0
