But since President Thomas S. Monson's announcement regarding the missionary age changes during October's general conference, the excitement surrounding mission calls has been increasingly shared through many social media channels.

Extended family members and friends often gather to find out where their missionary will be serving, and the Internet has allowed those far away to participate, as well.
