Lela Davidson – author, essayist and freelance journalist for TODAY Moms – recently shared her view on social media apps that are used by young people. In her post “Moms, you oughta know: 11 social media apps teens are using now” she lists and describes the most popular social media apps that not only parents but also professional youth workers should know. So if you don’t know the following apps please check out her post to get a brief introduction to each:

  1. Facebook
  2. Instagram
  3. Twitter
  4. Pinterest
  5. Vine
  6. Reddit
  7. Tumblr
  8. Kik
  9. Snapchat
  10. Pheed
  11. Wanelo
  12. 4Chan

I miss one in the list that is very popular in Germany/Europe: WhatsApp. Acoording to Forbes “The Biggest Social Network You’ve Never Heard Of.

Just had a quick check asking my 17 year old son. He knows Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, Tumblr, Snapchat, and WhatsApp, but he only uses Facebook and WhatsApp. Maybe something wrong with him ? … just kidding 😉
