According to recent statistics from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 41% of U.S. teenagers are on Snapchat (April 8, 2015). Alongside Facebook and Instagram, Snapchat rounds out the Top 3 of teen social media sites. This was also consistent with the college students in my doctoral research who reported the same “top 3.” But what about you as an educator? Do you use Snapchat? Do you understand it? I’ve found that higher education professionals are lagging behind in their knowledge of this important social network.
