My older two children are no longer teenagers, and they’ve both made no secret of the fact that they use Snapchat to share photos and jokes with their friends. Now, the reason I began using social media at all was to keep up with my kids. I managed just fine with Facebook and Twitter, but Snapchat mystifies me.
Part of it is that I don’t have a lot of time to figure out this app, which I find complicated (I’m always choosing the wrong icon and winding up where I don’t want to be). Part of it is that I much prefer words to pictures or video. And maybe part of it is that I’m just not that motivated.
I should get motivated, because my 14-year-old uses Snapchat too.
