I hope all of you are enjoying a very great Christmas this year filled with a feeling of love for our Savior and enjoyment with family and friends.  I hope that we’ve all taken time to reflect on his miraculous birth and life and have shared the gift He would have us give him each day of our lives: our kindness and love to others.

Enjoy this song and video of Jesus’ birth:

I thought that since it’s been a couple of months since General Conference it would be good to share the stats on who the most “liked” General Authority is.  Depending on how you want to break it down, it is either Dieter Uchtdorf or David Bednar.  This is based on the latest statistics from the October 2014 General Conference.

Below is a chart that includes the top 10 talks from Conference talks.  This is ranked in order from the talk with the most “shares” and “likes” on social media from greatest to least.



Name

Title  Talk Shares
David Bednar Apostle Come and See 13,000
Jeffery Holland Apostle Are we not all Beggars 12,000
Jorg Klebingat Quorum of 70 Approaching the Throne of God with Confidence 11,000
Dieter Uchtdorf Presidency Lord, is it I? 9,500
Lynn Robbins Quorum of 70 Which way do you Face? 7,200
Dallin Oaks Apostle Loving others and living with differences 7,200
Dieter Uchtdorf Presidency Receiving Testimony of Light and Truth 6,200
D Todd Christoffersen Apostle Free to Act for Selves 5,300
Richard Scott Apostle Exercise your Faith 5,100
Dieter Uchtdorf Presidency Living the Gospel Joyful 5,000

As you can see, David Bednar, a member of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles, has the highest ranked talk.  However, you’ll notice that Dieter Uchtdorf has all three of the talks he gave included in the top 10.  With Uchtdorf’s three talks combined, he has over 20,000 shares so far and Bednar has about 13,000 from his one talk, so you could argue either way.

Also, it should be pointed out that although a certain authority may be on the list, it doesn’t mean they are the most popular as a person.  It could be that they simply shared a topic that hit home to a lot of people.

What are your thoughts on who today’s most liked General Authority is?
