#CMGRHangout presents: Snapchat Communities (Preview)

December 10, 2015 — by Sherrie Rohde0

I’ll be the first to admit that originally I only created a Snapchat account so that my friends would stop complaining that I didn’t have one. Recently I began using it actively as it was so integral for a few of my close friends. As with anything new, I went to Google to find accounts for those who the Internet claimed were “doing it right” or at the very least interesting. What I learned in following these total strangers the Internet seemed to love was that Snapchat can actually be a very useful tool for helping to build community. In addition to that, there are so many communities already in existence on Snapchat that are truly fun to join.

Join us for this week’s #CMGRHangout panel on Friday, December 11th at 2pm EST/11am PST to talk about how you can use Snapchat to help build community as well as where you can find Snapchat communities to join.

Jonathan BrewerDom Garrett and Sherrie Rohde will be hosting the hangout with Nick Cicero and Cyrene Quiamco as panelists. Christin Kardos and Carrie Keenan will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout.
