15 Minute Snapchat 101 Tutorial

This evening my 18 year old son gave me some lessons on using Snapchat. After reading Mathew Ingram’s  (@mathewi) article from last week, “Snapchat’s Ultimate Goal Isn’t Just Chat—It’s Total Media Domination”  on our flight into Ohio, I decided Snapchat is a social media app and platform I need to learn more about. Last week, Carl Hooker (@mrhooker) gave an awesome series of presentations about “Digital Citizenship” for students, parents, faculty and staff at our school in Oklahoma City, and Snapchat was one of the apps he talked and told stories about. I downloaded and created an account on Snapchat awhile back, but really haven’t used the app much until today. In response to Stephanie Bice’s request for Snapchat help tonight, I recorded and edited a 15 minute screencast video tonight sharing what I’ve learned so far about using Snapchat. If this proves helpful to you, please let me know with a comment below or by sending a Twitter reply to @wfryer.

    Thanks Wes! Try holding your finger on the screen while using the front facing camera to bring up filters. (Had to ask a teen how to do this) 🙂

    That’s a great lesson, thank you! I first could hardly understand how to use it.

    Thanks, I will need to watch it a few times to get it, but the information is down to earth!
