Be careful what you post on social media sites

The Australasian Bible Mission is concerned at the growing presence of Mission activity appearing on Facebook and other social media.

We are aware that the Internal Security Organisations of some countries in which we work are accessing the social networking media to seek out information on local brethren and sisters and contacts. This was highlighted earlier this year when a photograph and information of a local brother was posted on Facebook by a fieldworker returning home. This information was accessed by the Internal Security of the country concerned and created considerable difficulties for the local brother.

Our request is that brethren and sisters should be circumspect about what is placed on Facebook and other social media websites, and that no information about our work should be exhibited at all in respect to countries which disapprove of evangelisation.
