 Introduction to Snapchat



Seating is limited, stop by the Information Desk or call 447-1690 to register.

Snapchat is a mobile app for Android and iOS devices. One of the core concepts of the app is that any picture or video or message you send - by default - is made available to the receiver for only a short time before it becomes inaccessible. This temporary, or ephemeral, nature of the app was originally designed to encourage a more natural flow of interaction. Learn the basics of this app in this class. Bring your smartphone fully charged, with the ability to access your app store. If you have any questions, call Suzanne at 447-6681.
