Snapchat, Instagram, and TikTok have become popular over the past few years for youth. So, what is it all about? What are all of these apps for and how do they work? Whether you are a parent preparing your child for digital citizenship or a parent looking for resources to share with your tweens and teens already using the platforms, we want to be sure you have the technical information you need to understand these platforms better. We will be going over each social media platform to talk about account settings that can be adjusted such as:
- location tracking and sharing
- ads and in-app purchases
- public default settings
- "temporary" pictures and videos
We will also touch on other social media platforms such as HouseParty, Roblox, Discord and Kik.
