Snapchat Explained: A Microlearning Event
A 30-minute event, Wednesday, September  5, 2018, 12:00pm Eastern/11:00am Central/10:00am Mountain/9:00am Pacific

Snapchat is extremely popular with young adults, but to many of us who are a bit more seasoned, the app doesn't make much sense. What does Snapchat do exactly? How does it work? What's the appeal?

If you don’t understand Snapchat now, join us for this microlearning event. In just 30 minutes, you will better grasp what it is, how it works, and why it’s an important marketing tool that libraries can use to reach patrons. Social media expert Paige Alfonzo will be your guide—she'll take you through what you need to know and answer all your Snapchat questions.

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins. Attendees should add messenger@webex.com to their approved email sender list, so they can ensure that they receive the automatic notifications.

This is an online event hosted through WebEx. Further technical information is available at the ALA Store FAQ page.
