The most popular social network for young people is… this week in social media

Happy Friday everyone! Update / correction: last week I shared a story about an Australian of Vietnamese descent, named Phuc Dat Bich, was not allowed on Facebook. It turns out the whole thing was a hoax. Sorry about that! According to The Atlantic, the most frequently used social network is… texting! That’s right, texting beats out […]
