Whilst students are spending more time at home, their use of social media will drastically increase.
Naturally, the internet has responded and there has been a significant increase in new social media platforms, such as the new Houseparty app.
Whilst new apps present many amazing opportunities, especially for communication during these difficult and somewhat lonely times, they should always be used with caution and where possible with adult supervision.
Users should always check their privacy settings first and be aware of any personal information that could be potentially shared during a live stream.
