Member Networking
Your own private online community
The Member system allows your members to maintain a personal profile, a biography and a journal of news, images and links. The site operator can create interest groups and assign members to them and can also define permissions about who may see and add content. The details of member profiles vary somewhat depending on the category of service selected by the congregation. The system is very flexible and can incorporate your ideas as well as ours.

Registration and Membership

  • enables personal updates by members (examples)
  • facilitates member-to-member communication
  • improves and secures the user experience
  • provides a unique login ID and password
  • allows access to interactive features
  • restricts selected content to registered users
  • ensures security of confidential information

Why not use a popular social networking service?

Commercial social networking sites have a primary goal of earning money for their shareholders by selling advertising space and user information. Their data is out for bid by persons and corporations wanting to sell products and services or to leverage information for other, e.g., political, purposes.

Preview

Request a demonstration to open the blog, forums, member management and other tools. See how easily you could maintain your own site. A comprehensive demonstration takes about 30 minutes.

Related Features

The Member system is only for social networking on the website. Our Roster tool is a more comprehensive system for managing other traditional aspects of participation in the religious community. It integrates with other data processing services, such as accounting and participation in the life of the congregation. Industry-standard, granular permission lists let you control how the two relate and what elements of your data are displayed to members or groups. (More)

Personal Updates

Members' personal updates are brief news items that may contain images and links to additional information. Each site can define the display style, number previewed, stc. Links to the respective members are displayed only to enrolled users.

I've updated the home page; it's more compact and follows HTML/CSS rules better.

I have a test profile. I will experiment with the site over the next few days. I understand that my submissions may be erased at any time.

We've updated the welcome and introductory pages. Several new features have been added in 2018, and we've had a general facelift. Of course your site will have its own design.
