With smartphones and mobile devices making their way into the hands of increasingly younger children, the YWCA Darien/Norwalk and the Darien Library co-hosted a presentation yesterday called “Understanding Your Tween’s Online World: Apps & Games.” Darien Library’s Assistant Director for Innovation, Jon Blyberg gave a comprehensive overview on games popular with the 6 -15 age group (covering the ever-addictive Minecraft) . I spoke about the most popular networking apps: Instagram, Snapchat, Vine and YouTube. Download the “Apps – Review” chart for a quick comparison. It was a very engaged audience seeking to better understand the world in which their digital natives live.

I’m curious what social networking apps are most popular (or desired) in your household? Please share in the comments.
