Teens are using Snapchat more and more to keep up with each other.
Today Snapchat announced “Snap Map,” a feature that helps teens explore the location of their followers/friends.
In this video Josh Ochs teaches you how to use the “Snap Map” feature (and how your kids are using it to locate their friends).
- Are you a parent who understands the negative effect social media apps can have on your child’s future?
- Here’s what you can expect each month in Parent University:
Join our next Parent University event to learn the most popular apps (and get practical tips to protect your student).
This feature lets teens “pinch to zoom” on their story page and view the map where their friends are posting from.
If your students are 10-15 years old, please be very careful when letting your students use this feature on Snapchat.
Predators and scammers use geolocation to know where your kids are at (and when you’re not home, for a possible robbery).
In Parent University I’m going to show you how to use a featured called “Only show my Snaps to friends.” This will restrict what your students share with people they don’t know.
Please consider joining Parent University so we can teach you Snapchat (and other apps) each week.
Each month we host 2-8 live tutorial videos teaching you Snapchat (and other apps) so you can learn along the way.
Join hundreds of families who learn the apps through us (so they don’t annoy their kids) and are able to learn all of the facts before starting a dialog with their family.
